Charlie Coyle And Thomas Vanek Are Lighting It Up Lately, Worth A Look In All Leagues

When the season started no one expected much from Thomas Vanek, RW (1 G, 1 A, 3 SOG) after he crash-landed to end his 2013 season with the Habs. It was so bad by the end that the Habs were giving Vanek fourth line minutes or just flat out benching him during the Eastern Conference Finals, so if you expected a move to Minnesota to instantly fixed what ailed him, you were cray cray...

Dubnyk Vaults Wild Into Cup Contention

View image | On January 15, the Minnesota Wild sent a 2015 third-round draft pick to the Arizona Coyotes for goaltender Devan Dubnyk. It was as solid move at the time, as the goalie situation for Minnesota was less then ideal, but the production Dubnyk has provided since joining the Wild has been so much more then anyone expected. His play is a gigantic reason...

NHL Western Conference playoff predictions: Wild and Flames

It is no secret that making the playoffs in the Western Conference is a tall task for any team. Even though there are two less teams in the west than the east, the region is known for having more parity than their eastern counterparts. Maybe besides the Edmonton Oilers and the Phoenix Coyotes, any team can win on any given night. The competition is so tight that even last year...

Devan Dubnyk: Savior of the Minnesota Wild’s playoff hopes

Coming off a win against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday, the Minnesota Wild are 38-24-7, and occupy the first Western Conference Wild Card spot with 83 points. Trailing the Wild are the Winnipeg Jets (80 points), LA Kings (79 points), and San Jose Sharks (76 points).

Chris Stewart took his trade from the Blues personally

The Blues traded away Chris Stewart last season to the Buffalo Sabres in a deal which was supposed to answer the team’s questions in net. The Ryan Miller experiment proved to be unsuccessful and Stewart found himself skating for the Sabres – a punishment most fans wouldn’t wish on even their most hated hockey player. Stewart was flipped from the Sabres to the Minnesota Wild...

Video: Devan Dubnyk’s theatrical dive against the Ducks

Devan Dubnyk has been one of the best stories of the 2014-15 season. Unfortunately, one ugly incident marred what was yet another strong start by the goaltender when the Wild took on the Ducks. Corey Perry was trying to beat Dubnyk to the puck and his stick knocked into Dubnyk’s stick. While we could describe Dubnyk’s reaction to the minor contact, we’ll let you watch the theatrics...
