Yeo Fired! - Minnesota Wild Fire Head Coach Mike Yeo The Minnesota Wild have told Mike Yeo he’s no longer their head coach. After losing their 8th consecutive game and their 8th consecutive home game Saturday afternoon, General Manager Chuck Fletcher had very little choice to make a change now. Firing the head coach is the easiest change an organization can make to put a little fire into the players, no pun...

Dennis Wideman, the NHL and the Definition of Deliberate The National Hockey League suspended Dennis Wideman for 20 games without pay yesterday for his alleged hit on linesman Don Henderson in a game against the Nashville Predators on January 27th, 2016. At first glance, it looks very bad but, you don't make a decision on your first glance or the hit alone. Watch what happened before and after the play to make...


Broken at the Break? What do the Minnesota Wild do now?

Broken at the Break? What do the Minnesota Wild do now? The Minnesota Wild have 6 points in their last 10 games (2-6-2), 9 points since the calendar turned to 2016 (3-7-3) and have scored only 23 goals in those 13 games (16 in the last 10). The lack of scoring (and winning) has them out of a playoff spot with 33 games left in the 2015-16 NHL season.

A scoring slump or a slump of any kind always gets fans aski...

Who's Going WILD in Minnesota in 2015-16? The Minnesota Wild will be primarily the same team for the 2015-16 season. The same team swept in the 2nd round of the playoffs by a familiar opponent, the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. Down 3-0 after the 1st period of Game 1, they came back with 3 goals in the first 10 minutes of the 2nd, and I'm sure most fans thought "Here we go. Th...

Minnesota Wild Roster on the Day of Free Agent Frenzy The Minnesota Wild’s 2014-15 season ended with a sweep from the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks.

The 2014-15 Minnesota Wild was the best in the NHL in the 2nd half of the season, a team that was 18-19-...

Minnesota Wild Game 3 Recap - Wild lose 1-0! Is it over? Minnesota Wild can't get on the board against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3. Patrick Kane's 1st period power play goal holds up as Chicago takes a 3 games to none lead in the 2nd round series.

The Wild came out flying in the 1st period getting a couple good scoring chances but Chicago withstood the opening surge and only helped build their confident p...
