Another sub 20 shot performance from the Wild. And can someone explain to me what qualifications Brunette boosts to be our PP coach? That 5 on 3 was beyond atrocious. I understand Brunette being a former Wild player will sell a few more seats to the hockey moms who don't understand that Bruno was nothing more than a guy who stood in front of the net and battled along the boards, but Bruno never made passes longer than 10 feet or shot from beyond the goalmouth, two requisites for a good PP.

Terrific win for the Wild knocking off the defending Stanley Cup Champions on our home ice. A shame Kuemper lost the shut out with 31 seconds left, but he had a whale of a game! SKOL Wild!

So shots on net are more important than the scoreboard I guess? The Wild have a winning record when being outshot and yet also lost more games early in the season out shooting their opponent. What really matters is wins! Winning with their top players out, and winning from solid goaltending. This isn't healthy team yet but that won't stop people from complaining.

ARRey asks: Where are all the basement GMs who would have .24 ppg Zucker on the 1st line and .35 ppg Heater on the 4th? Zucker looks good right where he is. If he's going to be here instead of Iowa, he's right where he belongs.

Kuemper's starting to look like the kind of goalie you make a deep playoff run behind...

I blame Yeo for not getting the shutout. That group was on the ice way too long, and he had an opportunity to call a timeout after an icing. BTW, Fox SportsNorth were going to talk about Parise's impact on the game. Okay. No shots, no goals, no assists despite playing the third most minutes in the game for the Wild. To me that says no impact. Seriously, how can these people look into the camera and believe the b/s that is spewing out of their mouths.

Wild outshot again.First Harding now Kuemper on fire.Good goalies help an average coach look good.Once again the Wild catch a scedule break Hawks play an up tempo overtime game the night before while the Wild ate home resting. Also on there next road trip they do not play back to back games but get a day off in between games. Leipold must be friends with the league scheduling office. Now will everyone relax as i said the Wild will make the playoffs.

More evidence the Wild is a better team without Koivu

Good game Wild...I am pretty sure the same people complaining about the lack of shots are the same people complaining about the "quality" of shots we were getting while out shooting every team at the beginning of the year. Which way to do you want it? I know I like when they have more shots then nights like tonight, but I like it more when the Wild win, no matter what the shot count is.

This team frustrates and excites about once a week. Typical of a young team, they stunk at Dallas at looked awesome tonight at home. Eventually, they will learn to bring it every night. There are some very good signs with their young bucks. Granlund is turning into something special. The guy has amazing vision and his skating and toughness skills have improved dramatically over the past year. Fontaine is a pure goal scorer. His hustle factor has resulted in 3-4 goals the past few games. Check out the Cooke goal for proof.
