Big week for the Wild.

Recommended Posts

Scott K

Its going to be a big week for the Wild, they can gain a few points in the next week or so. We could be looking at 2nd place in the standings by the end of the week. Then again we could drop a few spots also, but it will be a good test on how good they are. Go Wild. I Think they can handle the Red Wings and Dallas.

It will be a good game tonight since both teams have had a couple days of rest. For some reason Dallas doesn't scare me to much and then I think we should beat the Islanders on Saturday. If the Wild go 2-1 this week I will be happy. Plus they have 1 or 2 games in hand on Calgary,Colorado, and Vancouver.

They're looking good so far tonight, hopefully they can sneak a few more by Hasek while he's doing the crappie flop all over the crease. grin.gif

Wild played great for 2 periods then went into a shell for the 3rd. You could tell a goal was coming. It looked like a soft goal but whatever, a goal is a goal. The Wild was just content on chipping the puck out to center in the 3rd. The Wild took the play to the Red Wings for the first 2 periods and should have done it in the 3rd and they would have ended up with 2 points instead of one.

Tough loss against the wings. Atleast we got a point in the standings! The team is looking tough, I like to see them rattle of 5 0r 6 wins in row.

In the first 2 periods they looked the best I have seen them play all year, quick on the puck, then alot of quick shots on goal. Then they decided to play prevent defense, that doesnt work for football, it wont work for hockey either!

Glad to see they did get a point though.

Yep, too bad they couldn't finish it off. Backstrom has been letting in some soft goals this year. I thought we got rid of that problem when Roloson left...

Tough loss against Dallas.

I thought they played a great game, although they couldn't find the back of the net.

I liked the tribute to Mike M. he is a class act guy! \:D

The Wild had 2 close games and lossed them, they need to start winning these games, although they did play real well. The schedule is a little easier now for the next few games, so its time to put a winning streak together.

I agree with the Isles and Blues coming up we should get a couple of victories.

Why did coach pull Backstrom after the 2nd? I thought the first goal was soft but he played all right after that. Wild need to win games that they should be able to win. Wild need an offensive defenseman in the worst way. Let's hope Blake or Campbell end up in a Wild sweater.

I agree, I don't understand the move! Thats a game the wild should of won, the dominated the whole game. It was tough for Harding to come in cold in the third and be expected to be dominate. I think that was a blown game by the wild and the coaching staff.

Came out with 2 points but the Wild have to tighten up the goaltending. Giving up 4 goals to the Nucks isn't very good. Nucks have only one line that can really do any damage. Sedin boys and Markus Naslund.

Yeah, luckily they pulled 2 points out of that one. At least they've been keeping themselves on top of the division. It's so tight every point makes a big difference.

I missed the game, looking at the game summary, it seemed like a tough rivilary game. Did I see right, that Rolston got 5 minutes for fighting! Thats awesome, I wish I would of seen my favorite wild player mix it up alittle!

Rolston came in hard on the end boards and pushed Willie Mitchell from behind. Mitchell embellished and crappie flopped to the ice. Some cat for the Nucks came in and just started swinging and Rolston had no choice but to start throwing haymakers. Didn't last to long as both players went to the ice almost right away. I never seen Rolston so mad after the fight. It was his second fighting major in his career and first since 1995 when he was with the Devils. You know who the coach was for the Devils back then?..........Jacque LeMaire

I was thinking that Rolston's hit on Mitchell could have been a penalty for boarding? tough call but Mitchell looked quite a aways from the boards, especially a dangerous play being hit from behind sorta. oh well, At least the Wild pulled two points and gave one to the Canucks.

The Wild are finally getting a few points ahead in our division. They just need to keep it up. Being Dallas played 3 more games then us. We could end up in second over all!

Still should have been a 2 point night for the Wild and 0 for Van. That goal off the faceoff was a killer. Wild need better faceoff percentages, that's where an addition like Forsberg could really help.

Fedoruk is impressing me, on Utube he's a punching bag, but here he is skating and playing well, did a great job covering a Burns rush last night.

I like what I see, except the end of games is always an adventure.

Wild have one faceoff guy and that is Koivu. Forsberg would help this team in so many ways IF he comes in healthy. Fedoruk is playing really well. The Wild should try to move Boogaard. When healthy he still only plays about 4 minutes a night.

The Wild never seem to blow out anyone. Always one goal games. It would be nice to see them blow someone out every now and then.

Yea Cjac Fedoruk on youtube is just a punching bag. They mentioned something the other night that Lemaire told Fedoruk if he was gonna play for the wild he has to play right and not just skating around looking for someone to drop the gloves with.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
