Brandon Saad Set Up Patrick Kane With A Sweet Spin-O-Rama

So Brandon Saad is stealing Patrick Kane's moves now—and by that we do not mean Saad went on a weekend bender at the Tau Kap house, though one can always hope. Rather, Saad busted out the Spin-O-Rama—which Kaner had learned from Denis Savard—during last night's win over the Wild. » 10/29/13 1:00pm 10/29/13 1:00pm

Dipshit Hockey Player Murders Grizzly Bear For Sport

Sorry everyone, but today's Bear Friday news is a big fucking bummer, and we have Minnesota Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner to thank for it. That's because Clayton Stoner thought it would be cool to go to British Columbia, shoot a grizzly bear, and then take some pictures of himself holding up the bear's severed head… » 9/06/13 3:12pm 9/06/13 3:12pm

Zach Parise And Ryan Suter Slip Through A Massive NHL Loophole, Before …

The Minnesota Wild signed both Zach Parise and Ryan Suter yesterday, and more power to them. Hockey's always better when a Minnesota team is good. The formerly thrifty Wild already have the second-highest payroll in the league, but their salary cap hits won't be nearly as brutal as they ought to be. That's because the… » 7/05/12 12:05pm 7/05/12 12:05pm

Devin Setoguchi Falls On His Ass In Season's Worst Shootout Attempt

The Wild, down three with four minutes remaining in regulation, miraculously sent the game to overtime on Devin Setoguchi's goal with ten seconds left. It's hero and goat for Setoguchi, who wiped out on Minnesota's last shootout attempt. Since forward progress was stopped, Carey Price didn't need to make a stick "save"… » 3/02/12 9:40am 3/02/12 9:40am

Please Kaner, Don't Hurt 'Em

When we received a reminder from the NHL about last night's NHL 36, a docu-reality show featuring Patrick Kane, the nice PR person predicted that we would make fun of him. (I can't imagine why!) Before we had a chance, Kane scored a shootout clincher that makes us want to take back every joke we've ever made, and… » 12/15/11 12:10pm 12/15/11 12:10pm

There Were Two Buzzer-Beaters In The NHL Last Night

Ryan McDonagh's putback after a Dan Girardi prayer caromed behind the net gave the Rangers a 3-2 win in overtime. Dany Heatley's bad-angle flick off of Nikolai Khabibulin's chest at the end of regulation salvaged a point for Minnesota, and eventually a second one with a shootout win. Both goals went in with half a… » 10/21/11 1:05pm 10/21/11 1:05pm

Minnesota Wild Fan Warns Rick Rypien That He, Too, Is Going To Lawyer…

James Engquist, the 28-year-old who was "grabbed" by Canucks forward Rick Rypien last night, told the Star Tribune that he is "seeking legal representation" because he was "assaulted, that's just the bottom line." What a day for lawyering up! » 10/20/10 9:25pm 10/20/10 9:25pm
