Mike Yeo's three-year run in Minnesota has been anything but easy. The Wild coach has had to navigate key injuries to his roster, his own growing pains in his first NHL head coaching job and the considerable expectations brought forth when the team's owner spent nearly $200 million on two players two summers ago.
Throughout this up-and-down season, the Minnesota Wild lagged behind the leaders of the Central Division.
Erik Haula started the rush from the circle in the Minnesota zone early in the third period of a then-scoreless Game 3, leaning forward as he reached the blue line to thread a cross-ice pass to Matt Moulson.
The Minnesota Wild have returned defenseman Keith Ballard to the lineup for Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal against Chicago.
Right about the time the Chicago Blackhawks got into trouble Friday night, it was showtime for Patrick Kane.
Ilya Bryzgalov will start in goal for the Minnesota Wild in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Minnesota Wild are a little weary and worn out after winning a grueling seven-game series.
The momentum of this first-round playoff series has shifted to Minnesota.
The Minnesota Wild were denied at the net by Semyon Varlamov time after time, a 44-shot barrage in regulation that resulted in, alas, zero goals.
The Minnesota Wild have switched goalies for Game 3 of their playoff series against the Colorado Avalanche, giving Darcy Kuemper the start instead of Ilya Bryzgalov.
Former Caps goaltending prospect Semyon Varlamov and the Colorado Avalanche are back in the playoffs for first the first time since 2010.
The Nashville Predators finished strong, even if was for naught.
The Minnesota Wild were reeling. The Phoenix Coyotes were rolling.
The Vancouver Canucks are at the point in the season where every loss could end their playoff hopes. Those hopes are still alive after a big road win over Minnesota.
Surging into and out of the Olympic break, the Minnesota Wild have created a significant cushion between them and their competitors for the two Western Conference wild-card playoff spots.
His status was tenuous at best by New Year's Eve last season, when the Wild lost their sixth straight game and Yeo felt compelled at the next practice to tell the players he wouldn't coach simply to save his job.
"I am very excited to continue to coach the Minnesota Wild and pursue a Stanley Cup for the State of Hockey," Yeo said. "Our fan support has been amazing and it went to a new level during the playoffs this season. We are all motivated to reward them."
