Funny I was annoyed there wasn't anything outside the X. Well I drove past it and didn't see that little sign. Was hoping maybe they'd throw something up so that people could actually see.

Yeah I saw that. I meant on the front of the building. A little banner on the SE side is better than nothing, but can't see it from W 7th or from the 94 side.

Backstrom, who was injured in warmups last night, was down at the rink getting looked at today. Coach Mike Yeo said he is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. But the way Backstrom skated off yesterday, I think the assumption now is Harding will start Game 2 with Kuemper backing him up.

Jason Pominville continues to be day-to-day and, like I said, was not on the ice with last night’s scratches. Obviously a lot of guys looked to be banged up last night. Matt Cullen seemed to aggravate his injury. Clayton Stoner only played a few shifts in the first and 8 minutes in the game after getting hit hard by Andrew Shaw. Several guys, like Jared Spurgeon, Marco Scandella and Ryan Suter, blocked some shots from close-range, so I’m sure they’re smarting.

This team without Brodin or Suter would have been a nightmare.

Thought about teams getting a percentage of points in a pool of non-playoff teams is intriguing. Wonder how that would work?

You didn't say that they gave Brodin the Calder and Suter the Norris. Come on, Jarick. Pump our tires!

EDIT: And Harding for the Masterton!

Pat Kane for Lady Byng? really? Mr. Friedman might want to actually find out what the criteria is for that award. I cant agree with Toews for Hart either, but that one is atleast arguable.

Game 1 drew a 9.4 rating/16 share (meaning 16% of all TVs on were tuned to FSN) and was the highest-rated program in the Twin Cities. Guessing that being the first playoff game in 5 years and overtime paid off in getting eyeballs to the screen.

It'll be interesting to see how the loss effects Game 2.

Watching the beatings administered to Toronto and NYI tonight, the Wild state of mind should feel okay with game 1.

Wild updates after game 1

I didn't like this quote:

Quote:
During his media availability today, Yeo said that he’d like the team to play with more of a physical edge, especially in the offensive zone.

“(We need) to make their ‘D’ pay a price,” Yeo said. “Our forecheck wasn’t enough of a factor.”
I guess we'll see the same dump-chase tactic in the next game.

I agree. Pittsburgh destroyed NY Islanders. It wasn't a game even 10 minutes in. It was over.

The Hawks had a scare in game 1 while the other #1 seed in Pittsburgh had a party. The Wild have nothing to be ashamed of.

Yes, but it's a best of 7 series.

You lay big hits on the Hawk's blueline, especially a certain young player in their top-4 who has been known to have defensive gaffs, and you can start opening up the entire defense.

The Hawks blueline actually isn't the greatest. Their awesome forwards cover that up that fact a lot.

Is this really the best way to show the series that NHL.com could come up with? I might just be looking for things to complain about, but you'd think having a team's wins on the same side with the logo would make some sense.

More confidence with the puck, I'd say.
No, no, no. It's dump and chase against the Hawks. Only it needs to be done a bit better. All about timing and placement of the dump.

Not necessarily. What I think this quote illustrates is an issue I've had with the wild for pretty much ever: we never go in and punish the opposing D men for playing the puck. We do not check on the forecheck like we should. It's about damn time they start doing something about it.

Trying to listen to Russo this morning on KFAN and being reminded just how freaking annoying Paul Allen is.

I seriously don't know why the Wild let PA in the building, he is so rude to the organization.

I'm not opposed to the forward making the hit on the defenseman on the forecheck. You're taking that guy out of the play. As it is, they kind of skate by them after the puck is already being broken out.

No Pominville or Bäckström in Wild practice, per @ULSavolainen and Russo.
