12 Feb 2011 - Blues 1, Wild 3: Your Hockey Day TRIUMPH




@
(24-20-9, 57pts, 13th) - (29-20-5, 63pts, 9th)

12 Feb 2011 - 8pm

at Xcel Energy Centre






Happy Hockey Day, everyone! On a day declared to celebrate the game at all its many levels, and after hours of outdoor high school games and a Gophers matchup, it's time for YOUR Minnesota Wild to take to the ice and show off hockey at its highest levels!

Last night's game, the first of the home-and-home against St. Louis, was a nailbiter, with the Wild tying the game four times, including once with Theodore firmly planted on the bench with under a minute left to play. They then pulled out the unthinkable: a nine-round shootout win!!

This keeps the Wild on pace in terms of points per game, as they've got 2 or 3 games in hand on many of the middle-of-the-pack teams.

Sure, the Wild haven't been great on the tail end of doubleheaders, and maybe this winning pace isn't quite sustainable and grumble grumble grumble, but lighten up a bit! It's Hockey Day! And besides, lately the Wild sure have been showing a lot more consistency on the ice.

Lines:

Brunette-Koivu-Miettinen
Clutterbuck-Brodziak-Havlat


Bouchard-Cullen-Nystrom

Staubitz-Madden-Kobasew

Zanon-Stoner
Barker-Spurgeon


Schultz-Burns

Backs
(Theodore)

How has Bouchard played the past few weeks, fellas? I can only get games that are on Versus. I haven't noticed him in the highlights so is he still creating space for his linemates with good puckhandling or has he been soft/invisible?

He scored an important goal during the shootout yesterday.

Butch has been on fire the past few weeks playing at just over a ppg. He has scored some big time clutch goals and shootout goals.

Yeah I'd agree, it's been good to have him back. He's got this uncanny ability to just get into tight places and keep the play moving.

Speaking of Bouchard, anybody thinking Koivu or Havlat's going to break Bouchard's 50 Assists in a season record this year?

Game's in an hour; I had it wrong on the OP for a while. Streams generally don't start until the game does.

If the Wild keep playing like they have been I could see Havlat surpassing that mark by just a couple.

Anyone else hate that FSN almost never shows any of the pregame stuff? I'd love to see the teams take the ice, the anthems, the game teaser, and whatnot, especially today.

"Niklas Backstrom has literally been on fire since the All-Star Break."

Brilliant commentary...

It's not good when the game starts with 'literally' abuse.

Tommy, did you really spell the word Centre on Hockey Day Minnesota? That just ain't right.

Wild beat the crap of their hated rivals and deny Louie his revenge.

What did you think of UFC 126?
