First goal, all on Dubnyk. It was over at that point. What a bunch of jokes. If we were forced to expose our entire roster to Vegas they would have taken, maybe, 2.

How is it one goal early in the game means Game Over? That kind of talk only comes up when dissecting a hockey game. Personally I don't buy it. Still a lot of game left.

I know you like to bust balls and bait but have you actually played sports? The "here we go again" factor was front and center when he snuffed that first one. We just stopped playing.

I'm home and free to watch a game tonight......sure hope we get the good Wild tonight. It seems this team is becoming more and more a Jekyl and Hyde team.

Yeah, this is a another in the long list of "big ones". Gotta get 2.


BTW- Toews gets pissed at his teams play and fights Kessler. Mikko probably would have invited him to Geneva to talk about things.

I'm in watching this one in real time tonight, a shocker for me. Hope it's a good one.

Nice skate goal by Staal! Seeler got brutalized in the fight but he didn't stop throwing punches. Nice effort.

It's "ovah" after 2 late by Zucks, including an early empty netter.

They pulled one out after another poor start. A badly needed 2 points that's for sure.

Geez, Kunin out for the season. Needs surgery on an ACL injury that happened in the third period. I don't remember even seeing anything when it happened.

Bummer for him in his first season, but we'll have a lot of time to enjoy watching his game. Now we need everyone else to stay healthy for the run.

Geez, I sure wish this team would bring it every night like they did last night. Now we go on the road and can only hope they bring their legs and energy with them.

Good Dubnyk came to play. When he starts out hot they gain confidence and play well. When he sucks early..their play reflects it.

They get a nice road win and finally solve the Canucks. Cullen looking like he's ramping up for another cup run.......
OK, I know Cullen didn't get traded back to Pittsburgh, but I can hope.

Cullen is playing great, amazing at his age that he is getting better this late in the season!

Took a gift from #7 and empty net for Coyle to get off the schnide, good thing Chaalie had strength to skate thru the protracted hook down the ice.

My gosh, how did he (#3) miss the whole net from back door earlier?
That had to be eating at him.

Are the Wild in their annual stretch of playing like the best team in the league for about a month and then dropping back into the middle of the pack? Or are they built to sustain this?

We keep hoping for the later, but most likely the former.....unfortunately.

With Staal's resurgence along with Nino and Parise coming on here at the end, we have the scoring.
Granny and Zucks will continue to contribute points as well.

Goal-tending will be our demise, imo.

Dubes just isn't good enough for a Cup: he lets weak goals thru (at least one) every game and does stupid clumsy stuff when he comes out of the crease for the puck.

Stalock is great with the puck, but erratic at stopping them.

There is always a chance, and Dubes has looked somewhat better lately, but I'm prepared for the usual bow-out, maybe 2nd round.

Glad I skipped the game last night. After watching a weekends worth of great high school hockey with teams playing all out for each other, watching the Wild go through the motions would have ruined it all. Must have been tired last night huh? It was the backend of a back-to-back after all.....

I would never play Dubes back-to-back.

Esp. this late in the season.

Stalock would have given us a better chance there, imo.

And as Russo said on twitter last night:
One thing consistent with this team: The 30-somethings struggle in the second of back-to-backs. It has been a trend all year

Aren't the 30-somethings like half our team? Good job Fletcher!

Only 3 more back-to-backs to close out the season!
