What a game. They worked their butts off in the offensive zone. It's what they have to do the rest of the way and into the playoffs. When you don't have size, you hope you can outwork your opponent. Well good luck with that.

Great effort by the Wild. Both goals came from 15-20 feet out...the sweet spot. Glad to see them back off a bit, too easy to defend right in front of today's huge goaltenders & D-Men. Best effort of the year by Boradziak and Setu...way to keep moving those feet and hit! Hope Pominville isn't concussed. Blatant, premeditated hit. Brown and those refs should be suspended for as long as Pominville is out. Wild can clinch playoff spot now if Columbus loses Thursday.

Kings were flat and still almost beat us! Wild will get destroyed in the playoffs! Greenlay is such a homer . In his eyes the Wild can do NO wrong and It's always a penalty on the other team. Browns elbow was the only one I could see.Stop crying Greenlay! And the 18,000 there tonight weren't much better! GEEZ!!!

Tell Bettman what you think about Brown's blatant hit. gbettman@nhl.com

Either Yeo is as smart as I am or as dumb, but he did exactly what I suggested in a comment the other day in regards to Clutterbuck and the 4th line. Was a fun game to watch. jcmac55 what game were you watching? Enjoy it for what it is. You sound like you are miserable

Mister Know it all says, yes they did work hard, in the moment you don't mind being a fan.... The bad thing about the Win is that the Wild have been given an excuse this year that they are not big enough to play against bigger teams BUT reality was shown tonight it was not about size but rather working hard/attitude all along and ...... AND again the reason I don't like Koivou as a captain, sure he has games like this once in a while, he is moody, he has moments, the great captains don't behave like that.... In fairness to the fans, this is a very poorly led team at the end of the day

I wrote to Mr Bettman re the obvious intent to injure elbow thrown by Brown, Great all around game!! Hope to see the same effort in the next two games and in the playoffs!! Go Wild!!!!!

Solid game for the Wild. No chance Brown is suspended, he should be, but he won't.

When the Wild lose, there's 50 comments in an hour. When they win, under 10. What's up with that?
