Aeros’ snap 6-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over Milwaukee

I think just about anyone in the world understands the emotions that come with disappointment.  For kids, it might be the disappointment they didn't get that gift they really wanted.  For adults it might be being being rejected by an employer or maybe being denied a promotion.  The disappointment is tough to deal with and […]

Wild fail to start new win streak in 4-2 loss to Coyotes at home

5, 4, 3, 2, 1…Happy New Year’s everyone!  Another year is behind us and as always people often feel compelled to put that previous year in perspective.  Was it a good year?  What would we change about if if we could?  That of course leads people to make those famous weak promises (for most who […]

Wild’s losing streak ends with 4-3 win against Oilers at home

“You load sixteen tons what do you get, Another day older and deeper in debt, Saint Peter don’t you call me ’cause I can’t go, I owe my soul to the company store, If you see me coming better step aside, A lot of men didn’t a lot of men died, One fist of iron […]

Hard work by Minnesota Wild not enough in shootout loss in Nashville

This really is one of my favorite times of the year, the true tournament time in Minnesota.  Yes, the annual State Tournament is one of the big showcase, but only for the 32 teams for boys / girls in Class A and Class AA.  The holidays also brings us statewide tournaments which feature just about […]

Season’s greetings everyone.  I hope that you’re Christmas holiday, whether you observe it or not was an opportunity to spend some time with your family.  For young kids, its usually all about the gifts.  The anxious expectation of running to the family living room to see a tree stocked full of presents that taunt for […]

Minnesota’s losing streak extends to 6 games after 4-1 rout in Edmonton

Every holiday year you get your standard barrage of Christmas themed commercials that try to inspire you to ‘buy’ something for friends, family, etc.  Anyone out there like myself who cringes at the first time they hear the radio start blasting away the Christmas music tunes of “Jingle Bells” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” […]

Minnesota loses its 5th straight, in frustrating 2-1 road loss to Calgary

This last weekend was the start of college football’s ‘bowl’ season where 72 Division I-A teams get to play one last football game at various venues across United States (sorry Canada, the International Bowl is no more).  I haven’t even mentioned the Division III, Division II or the Division I-AA (FCS) playoffs which more or […]

Luongo and the Canucks shut down the Wild with ease in 4-0 victory

After the Wild’s 2-1 shootout loss to the New York Islanders, Head Coach Mike Yeo said it all when he stated, “Our last shootout loss felt like a win, but this shootout loss feels like a loss.”  It was a miserable effort.  The Wild were banged up no question; no Mikko Koivu, no Devin Setoguchi, […]

Depleted Wild come up short in 2-1 shootout loss to the Islanders

For any of you TV trivia buffs out there, can you give me the name of the theme song to the hit TV show M*A*S*H?  No, its not called the M*A*S*H theme song, but one of the most depressing titles in music history; Suicide Is Painless by Johnny Mandel and Mike Altman.  The song choice […]
