Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter had found themselves fighting for ice time and left to play limited minutes in a third- or fourth-line role for the Minnesota Wild.
The two big physical players had seen goals hard to come by and Minnesota coach Mike Yeo wanted a chance for Coyle and Niederreiter to "reset their game" by lessening their roles. Both responded with goals in Tuesday...
This goal by Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle may be a goal-of-the-year candidate. It was a bad turnover in the neutral zone by the Oilers, and Coyle made sure to not waste the opportunity. He looked like he had run out of real estate, but managed to bring the puck back out front and stuff […]

The life of a hockey players is tough. It looks like Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise lost some teeth in this incident because he bends over to pick them up off of the ice. My mouth hurts watching this.
It was just over a year ago — Jan. 15, 2014, to be exact —that the Edmonton Oilers made a final decision on goaltender Devan Dubnyk. All within an hour on that fateful day, GM Craig MacTavish dealt away Dubnyk — the netminder the Oilers had spent the last decade developing after drafting him 14th […]

Looking back on last nights game this was the lone reaction from anyone of Steve Downie’s teammates:
Gee, Adams don’t get so worked up. Save that...
“Hey Mike, will I get fired too?”
The Wild are a disgrace. At no point was this game even close.
– It looked like the Wild’s controllers broke on the Pens’ opening goal. Hack Sill (yes, we are calling him Hack Sill) finally got his first point as a Penguin, and the Pens were off and running. The worst part is people using this goal against the worst team in the Northern...

The Minnesota Wild have done a lot of losing lately, so it was head coach Mike Yeo’s turn to lose it during Wednesday’s practice.
According to Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Yeo stopped practice on two separate occasions, but it was when he halted things for the second time that he really went off on his team. The Wild have dropped eight of their last 10 games, and...
The Minnesota Wild are in an ugly downward spiral and head coach Mike Yeo isn’t sure what to do about it. He has already accused his team of not having a winner’s attitude and players have already said that they have hit rock bottom.
