sharks can't keep up with minnesota wild, lose 3-2


st. paul, minn. — the sharks broke through with their first goal in almost seven full periods on tuesday night against the minnesota wild.it took only another few seconds, though, to dig themselves another hole that they couldn’t escape.goals 15 seconds apart by martin hanzal and charlie coyle late in the second period proved to be the sharks’ undoing as they lost their fourth straight, this time 3-2 to the wild at xcel energy center.david schlemko’s goal with 2:03 left in the second period was the sharks’ first since the 19:13 mark of saturday’s game against the anaheim ducks.schlemko’s shot from just inside the blue line hit a body in front and got behind wild goalie devan dubnyk to tie the game 1-1 and snap a goal drought of 138 minutes and four seconds.what followed was a rapid fire su

wild takes a baby step in ot loss to detroit


detroit – the wild clinched a playoff berth while many were sleeping in the wee hours of sunday morning by virtue of the los angeles kings losing.but sunday afternoon in the team’s final visit ever to joe louis arena, it still felt like the desperate-for-something-good wild was fighting for its playoff lives.in a tight-checking game as the wild tried to revive some good habits and rid itself of the stench from a rough month, the detroit red wings — the second-worst team in the eastern conference — rallied from a pair of one-goal deficits to eventually win 3-2 in overtime.but when you’re 2-9-1 in the past 12 games and 3-10-1 in march after not so long ago leading the western conference, sometimes you have to grasp for positives.“that’s the best game we’ve played in a month,” coach bruce bou

loss to capitals is wild's fifth defeat in seven games


washington - in a battle of the slumping conference leaders, tj luxmore and jon mcisaac probably had to ice their orange-banded right arms tuesday night.the penalty-happy officials called a combined 12 minors, and the sad part is, if the wild had a half-decent power play on this given night, it probably could have pulled out at least a point before a 4-2 loss to the washington capitals at the verizon center.eric staal’s power-play goal 4:37 into the third period pulled the wild within one after the wild spotted the capitals a 3-0 lead, but the wild failed on six other disheveled looking power plays, including one with a chance to tie right after staal scored his 23rd goal.but in a game where the wild was victimized by bad line changes on two previous goals, one awful one by the third line

st. paul, minn. — the minnesota wild have once again snuffed out a potential losing streak before it started.this win might have been their best response yet.mikael granlund zoomed between two defenders to find open ice and wrap the winning shot around los angeles goalie jonathan quick with a right-left move just 12 seconds into overtime, giving the wild a 5-4 victory over the kings on monday night.granlund's career-high 20th goal gave the wild a 15-3-2 record following a loss. they've dropped consecutive games in regulation only once all season, on nov. 1 and 5. this was the wild's 15th comeback win. they answered all four goals by the kings: nick shore, tanner pearson, jake muzzin and marian gaborik ."everybody knows we can do it, and it's not a big deal if we go down," granlund said.

still-porous wild defense can't protect lead at winnipeg


winnipeg – as threadbare as the wild roster may be, coach bruce boudreau doesn’t believe that should have any impact on its ability to play effectively in its own zone. “no matter who’s in the lineup, you can play defense,” he said.the question remained, though, whether the wild would actually follow through with a better defensive effort friday at winnipeg. and the answer wasn’t enough to placate boudreau, after his team again squandered a lead in a 4-3 loss at bell mts place. while the wild had its moments, a slow start, some blatant mistakes and another late-game lapse left boudreau unsatisfied.playing for the first time in six days, the wild spotted the jets and their high-powered offense a 2-0 lead by leaving two players wide open for first-period goals. chris stewart, mikko koivu and






wild returns to winning ways with 3-2 victory over sharks


right now, bruce boudreau couldn’t care less about the wild’s 12-game winning streak in december, nor the six regulation losses the wild had in a 38-game span during a torrid three-month stretch.the wild coach is well aware the wild’s recent play isn’t up to snuff and won’t fly come playoff time, so, “to me, all that’s important is today.”that was said hours before the wild beat the san jose sharks, 3-2, tuesday at xcel energy center.the wild snapped a five-game losing streak and won for only the second time in nine games. two of the wild’s three wins in 11 games this month are now against san jose, the current pacific division leaders and last year’s stanley cup finalist.it was a strong two-way game for the wild, which swept the sharks in a season series (3-0) for the first time in franch
