MN Wild vs. New York Islanders tonight at the Xcel Energy Center

The Minnesota Wild have returned home after a long and grueling road trip. Tonight the MN Wild take on the New York Islanders at 7:00 in the Xcel Energy Center. There are still MN Wild Tickets available for this game, so why not spend Friday at the X cheering on our team!

With Martin Havlat out due to an injury, and Nathan Smith called up from the Houston Aeros to replace him, the Wild Roster is going to need all the fan support it can get. MN Wild Head Coach Todd Richards has made it clear, he does not want to see the Wild stay at the bottom of the standing any longer which is why in his words it is time to get tough with the players.

My prediction... anyone on the Wild roster who plays more than about 5 minutes of crappy ice time will be off the ice for the night. Todd Richards needs to prove his new style of Wild Hockey can win, if not he is toast.

Check out local sites like Ticket King, for Wild Tickets to tonight's game or buy Wild Tickets on the street as you make your way to X!

The Minnesota Wild had a rough road trip, but are home at the Xcel Energy Center next week

The Minnesota Wild are wrapping up a long road trip this weekend. The series started on Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The MN Wild roster was skating strong after a great win against the Stars. The final score on Tuesday was Wild 5- Maple Leafs 2.

After a strong road win, which has been rare for the MN Wild this season, Wild fans were hopeful that the Wild roster was ready to step up their road game play. But this did not happen, the Wild played the Lightening on Thursday losing 4-3, and the Washington Capitals on Friday losing 3-1. It seems that the Minnesota Wild need to learn to play without the support of a hometown crowd. The Wild take on the Hurricanes tomorrow before returning home for a streak of home games.

Next week look for updates for the MN Wild home series

MN Wild beat the Stars at the Xcel Energy Center, home of the Wild

What a game, what a game. The Minnesota Wild played the Dallas Stars at home in the Xcel Energy Center on Saturday night. The game started out strong for the Wild, which was quite the contrast from last Thursday's game against Vancouver that started out with a raggedy first period.

Saturday's game was a team win but Koivu, Clutterbuck, and Backstrom all stepped up and made huge plays that led the MN Wild to a 3-2 win. Wild Fans are hoping that this win will boost the confidence of the Wild who go on the road for the next 4 games. So far in the 2009-2010 Minnesota Wild Season the Wild are 1-8 on the road.

He's BAAACK... Gaborik and the New York Rangers were at the Xcel Energy Center

Love him or hate him, Gaborik was the face of MN Wild Hockey for a long, long time. And he was back, well back for a night at least. The New York Rangers and Gaborik were at the Xcel Energy Center on Friday to play the MN Wild.

The MN Wild were out to prove that they did not need Gaborik... in my opinion they did it. The Wild roster sans Gaborik made it clear that they could win without him, with a final score of 3-2 Wild, I would say they did that. It wasn't a slam dunk win, but no one expected it to be one... Wild fans just wanted to show the rest of the hockey world that the Minnesota Wild were not one player. Mission Accomplished!
