Wild vs. Canucks post-game report and more

Koivu and Wild score too little too late to make up for poor start in 4-2 loss to Vancouver

Written by Derek Felska | 13 March 2011

The High School Boys Hockey Tournament is over, the championship trophies and medals have been handed out. The Minnesota Golden Gophers Men's team is done with their season after being swept by Alaska-Anchorage. A few other Minnesota-based teams, in Bemidji State and University of Minnesota-Duluth are still alive but its a sign that hockey season is nearing an end. With the NHL playoffs about a month away will the Minnesota Wild find their season over too? With the way the Western Conference standings look right now, the Wild sit in 11th so its quite likely they will be scheduling a tee time mid-way through April. I'd like to be more optimistic but not having scored a goal in their last two games has that sort of an effect on a fan. Could they reverse their direction, perhaps, but now the team sits 4 points out of 8th place and while that may not sound like a lot it looks like the Grand Canyon right now. Minnesota will likely need some help from the rest of the league in order to get back into the Top 8.

The Wild travel to Vancouver to take on the best team in the NHL playing some of its best hockey right now and while there is a good possibility the team could still be without team captain Mikko Koivu and hitting machine Cal Clutterbuck and gritty defenseman Clayton Stoner the team you could say the team is reeling a bit. Vancouver is extremely tough when the team is completely healthy but can a depleted Wild squad pull of a major upset on the Canucks' home ice? Needless to say it won't be easy. No one would be surprised if the Wild went 3 games without scoring a goal, but can they overcome the odds and earn a victory over their hated-rival? (click on the link for the rest of the article)

This was another game the Wild had to have and again they came up short. Time to start scheduling tee times. There is a complete post-game report as well as a Houston Aeros update, and a prospect report featuring Jason Zucker and Mikael Granlund. Enjoy!
