Why Things Went Sideways for the Wild in Philadelphia

After taking a 2-0 lead in Philadelphia on Monday night, the Minnesota Wild saw things go from good to horrendous as they blew the lead and the game — losing 7-4 to the bottom-feeding Flyers. Head coach Bruce Boudreau called out some defensive woes in the postgame presser as the reason for why his team could not come away with the win. “You can’t make the mistakes that we’re making out there and hope to win a hockey game,” the head coach said afterward. So where exactly did the Wild go wrong in this game after they jumped out to that 2-0 lead? Let’s examine some film to see if there was a recurring theme. Greg Pateyrn takes a roughing penalty with the Wild up 2-0, Flyers score on the ensuing power play At the 11:09 mark of the first, Pateryn gets called for roughing. Now, this is a penalty that should […]

Wild’s Defensive Duo – Seeler and Pateryn – Playing Well on...

The Minnesota Wild are rolling as the calendar turns to November, having won seven of their last eight games. They sit at 8-3-2 with 18 points and in second place in the Central as of Tuesday morning. Along with that, one of the more encouraging signs is that they’re getting help from all over the lineup. That includes the Wild’s third defensive pairing of Nick Seeler and Greg Pateryn. Seeler and Pateryn had a couple of their best games of the season while the Wild played their most complete game of the season with a 5-1 victory in St. Louis over the weekend. Put an asterisk next to the Blues for struggling as a whole recently — with goaltender Jake Allen leading the way in that department — putting former Wild coach and current Blues head coach Mike Yeo’s job security in serious question. Still, the Wild put together a […]

Wild Season Preview: 2018-19 Will Showcase a Familiar Cast of Characters

The Minnesota Wild are one of three teams to have made the Stanley Cup Playoffs each of the past six seasons. That accomplishment also comes with early exits, including getting bounced in the first round three years in a row with the last at the hands of Winnipeg in five games. The playoff reputation perhaps follows this team around, like it or not. Maybe that’s why there’s a banner in the Wild’s new practice facility at TRIA Rink in St. Paul with these words: “Good is not good enough.” In some ways, the story is the same as the Wild turn the page to a fresh, clean sheet of ice for the 2018-19 season, which opens with Thursday’s game in Colorado. The Wild bring back a core group with guys like Ryan Suter, Zach Parise – both healthy at the start – goaltender Devan Dubnyk, veteran Eric Staal and fresh-off-long-term-contract […]

Minnesota Wild Sign Defenseman Greg Pateryn

The Minnesota Wild made the signing of defenseman Greg Pateryn official Sunday as free agency opened up at 11 a.m. Michael Russo of The Athletic had been mentioning this signing being a possibility all week, but it’s now been announced by the team. Pateryn’s deal is for three years and $6.75 million — a $2.25 million annual average value. Pateryn, 28, is a four-year NHL veteran, starting his career with Montreal but being dealt to the Dallas stars two seasons ago. Pateryn played his first full NHL season last season with the Stars, notching 13 points in 73 games. Most importantly, Pateryn is a right-handed defender, something that the Wild are starved for in their organization. Pateryn should slot in front of Nate Prosser and Ryan Murphy on the depth chart. This is an interesting move given the term on the contract, as the Wild are making a three-year commitment to […]
