Excellent game by Hards, I thought we controlled the better part of the 1st, the Cryers exerted some pressure in the 2nd and we battled them tough in the 3rd and got the two markers. Also withstood the 45 min stretch of empty net instituted by Cryer Coach Berube. Now bhrnew1; did we win tonight because the Cryers had to fly in here from FiJi or were we just the better club??? I'm saying the Cryers aren't in our league right now... And Coach Yeo, what in the h-e-double hockey sticks are you doing putting Haula in between Rupper and ZK28??? Man oh Man!!!

Will someone tell me why Brodziak cant hit the goal at all? Cooke passed it right to him in front of the net, he had the puck in the neutral zone with only one Flyer following him and he dumps the puck in and then chases it and it was not on a change. Why does he not rush the goalie and shoot the dam puck He is just to worthless out on the ice at 3 mil If yeo says he was tremendous again as he did in the paper on Sunday I am going to scream I guess Brodziak will only be tremendous every 28 games so we will hear it 2 times more in a 82 game schedule just trade him and get what you can for him he plays worse than the Minn Gopher Womans hockey team, his shots are so weak and then he tries to start a fight like a big tough guy out on the ice and stares down a player wow.. just get rid of him

I dont understand why Haula who almost scored in the first period was not on the ice hardly at all if at all after that. I just dont get Yeo at times, he makes the biggest blunders as a coach in his 3 yr tenure I dont care for him and I wish we would get a different coach who has some energy and enthusiam behind the bench instead of writing in his little white tablet all the time or giving dirty looks I dont ever see him getting the players excited to be playing and gets them going.. He is so stoic and boring

Nice win, but this team isn't going anywhere this year if it continues to clog the pipeline for young talent with guys like Konopka and Rupp. I mean, I've never heard a team put more emphasis on winning face-offs than this team. And you know what? We lost 30 of 48 tonight and won by two goals!! There should be a lesson in that. But, again, this team should've stuck with the same line-up it had in the last game against Colorado. It's time to turn the page on some of these veteran deadbeats once and for all--you know, the same type of guys that have made us essentially losers the past few years. This team doesn't move forward until it trusts its young talent. It just doesn't. I mean, I'd much rather watch Erik Haula center Zucker and Fontaine than watch Rupp the goon beat someone silly. Nice win, sure, but my guess is last game's line-up could've scored three or four tonight.

I hope the boys celebrated well tonight because they won't win another game until after Christmas when the stinky Islanders are in town; and the way the Mild score the Isles stand a pretty good chance. This team is baked - they just don't know it yet.

As my dear, deceased father used to say most of the guys posting comments would complain if they hung you with as gold rope! Take the win, enjoy it. Quit complaining all the time!!! Get a life!

Haula has looked very good since being called up. Brodzy, while a good skater with decent shot, has hands of stone. Any update on Granny's status?

Marcus, we won tonight because the game was nationally televised and the Wild had it in their head to be patient
