Teams are going to put a bullseye on him every game and I just worry for his safety in the nhl.
Brian Rafalski survived and had a great career, Spurgeon can too.

as long as their name is Harding.

he really didn't have to work hard at all. I was expecting some danger with what Jagr did the night before but Colorado looked a lot more aggressive.

A shutout is a shutout though, and that's one more win against a team some people picked to place ahead of us. I would think he gets the next start, too.

Indeed. Still needs to gain some weight.

All-around effort by the Wild helps it improve to 2-0

as small as he is and as often as he gets taken off the puck he's still overall a lot more effective than three of the other guys we had out there.

offensively he looks better than last year IMO, but defensively he isn't as quick...

Remarkable that Harding's focus and attitude are so stellar, we go about the daily routine and forget he's battling for his life. #shutout

You should see the filthy no look pass Granlund made between his legs to Cullen! Had Cullen been able to finish, it would've been all over YT pretty damn quick I'm sure.

it was beautiful! i'm surprised Cullen was quick enough on it to make the attempt. Watched it a few times on the DVR just now. Not worried about Granlund fitting in at all.

Preds play the Blues tomorrow so we get them on the back to back for Tuesday. This pleases me.

In better news, it's amusing how much the Blackhawks @ Coyotes game on NBCSN sounds like a home game for the Hawks. Place is raucous when the road team scores.
I live in Phoenix and was at the game. It's always like that with all the transplants and snow birds. I'm always a Coyotes fan unless the Wild are here.

That was a reminder of the Clutterbuck that we knew during his first season. Ya know, before he started easing up.

Probably because he was seeing birdies at that point.

Like him more than Terhaar. Which isn't saying much. I've been too stoked about watching Wild hockey that I haven't noticed him in a negative way.

Who would have thought Pierre-Marc would assist Parise's first goal with the Wild?

Nice passing between these 2 on that goal.

Clutterbuck seems to be good at it at least.

No need to let other players doing that. You can get a penalty as well.

Exactly. I prefer the safer route: skate faster than the other team. That way they'll have to trip, hold, and hook ya. Of course, there is one exception to that rule. His name is Downie. In which case you don't have to skate faster...in fact, you don't have to skate at all. Just stand there and wait for him to do something stupid.

We look so much faster as a team we'll see more chances this year.
