Minnesota Wild skate New Years Eve in a big MN Wild- LA Kings Match-Up

The Minnesota Wild will be spending New Years Eve in the Xcel Energy Center skating against the Los Angeles Kings. The MN Wild New Years Eve game has become a tradition of sorts in St. Paul, and lots of Minnesota Wild fans plan their New Years Eve around coming to the game.

This year, the Minnesota Wild Roster is going to need all of the extra encouragement they can get. The Wild faced the Kings in October and lost LAK 6- MNW 3. The MN Wild will skate against the Kings in Los Angeles tonight, and against the Ducks on Tuesday, before returning home for the Thursday Night match-up against the Kings.

Below are highlights from the October Wild v. Kings Game...

Minnesota Wild Holiday Games Series Go Well...

The Minnesota Wild played 3 home games last week at the Xcel Energy Center. Lots of hometown fans, in St. Paul for the Holidays, came out for Holiday Game Series... The Minnesota Wild Roster did not disappoint.

Although the MN Wild lost their first game last week (a Monday Dec 21 match up against the Colorado Avalanche), they played well and hung on for a final score of 4-3 Avalanche. The rivalry Wild-Avalanche Game was highly anticipated and despite skating well and handling the puck, the Wild just couldn't quite pull off a win

Two days later on Wednesday the Minnesota Wild roster skated against the Oilers, trampling them 3-1 with an easy win... Holiday Hockey Fans enjoyed watching Koivu and Cal Clutterbuck both skate great games

Finally on the Minnesota Wild Holiday Hockey Line-Up was a game against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday Dec 23rd. The Blues came out onto the ice confident and gave the MN Wild a run for their money, but in the end the Wild pulled off a 4-3 win, giving Minnesota Wild fans a very happy holiday!

Lots of new Minneosta Wild Jerseys for fans out there for the Holiday shopping season

If any of you are like me, you have avoided your holiday shopping until the last possible second and are now scrambling to find the perfect gift... I would like to extend a very large Thank You to the Minnesota Wild Apparel Team, who have created lots of Minnesota Wild Jerseys for Fans this season. I usually try to avoid being the MN Wild Fan that has a million pieces of Minnesota Wild Apparel, I guess I'd like to think of myself as a hockey purist and don't really think you need 4 Mikko Koivu Jerseys....

However, right now there are about 10 MN Wild Jerseys I really want. Here are pictures of just a few:Classic Red and White Minnesota Wild JerseysThrowback Minnesota Wild JerseyMN Wild Dark Green Jersey

Minnesota Wild Roster skates a great game to beat the Canadiens

The Minnesota Wild have had less than a perfect season, with several losses and some very sloppy skating early on, it was becoming hard to call myself a true Minnesota Wild fan...

Last night helped to change that, The Wild skated against the Montreal Canadiens, winning 3-1. Mikko Koivu provided strong leadership on the ice, directing most of the MN Wild offense. "Early in the game, you get the lead and you get the team going, and I think it's important on the road," Koivu said. "We did a pretty good job defensively, even if they had a lot of shots. In the third period we tried to keep it tight in the middle, and obviously Backstrom played a great game so that always helps."

Niklas Backstrom had a great game, blocking several shots and taking his personal winning streak to 4 games, while the Minnesota Wild are currently on a two game winning streak and are hopeful to extend that tonight with a game against the Senators.

Minnesota Wild Jerseys make great Holiday Gifts

Are you a Minnesota Wild Fan? Do you have Holiday Gifts to buy? Are you making a Holiday Gift wish-list... look no further, I have the perfect gift idea suggestion:
Minnesota Wild Jerseys
Anyone who even remotely resembles a MN Wild fan would love to get a Wild Jersey, trust me.. most of the people on my list are getting one. The plus side to the Jersey Gift Idea, there are LOTS of places to get Minnesota Wild Apparel. First of all, The Hockey Lodge at the Xcel Energy Center. The X is the home of the Wild so it just makes sense that it would be the home of the best Minnesota Wild Gear. Second, the Hockey Lodge at the Mall of America, closely tied to the store at the X if you are brave enough to head to Mall of America during Christmastime, there are great deals to be had. Finally, for those of you who hate the cold, snow and other holiday shoppers I would like to suggest ONLINE shopping... awesome deals, easy shipping and NO LINES! If Minnesota Wild Apparel doesn't do it for you my other gift suggestion...

MN Wild drop to last in NHL Northwest Division Standings

MN Wild bench supporting their team
I hate to write about the Minnesota Wild losing, it feels like throwing bad karma out into the Hockey Universe... However, if I didn't write about losing this season I would not have much to write about. With a 13-14-3 record, the Wild have not had the dramatic turnaround that some expected with the roster and coaching shake up.

In fact, the Minnesota Wild have dropped to last in the Northwestern Division. But the Edmonton Oilers are just a game ahead of us, definitely within our reach. In much better news however, the MN Wild are not the last in the Western Conference, the Wild Roster skated ahead of the Anaheim Ducks this past week.

This weekend the Wild takes on the Flames and the Cannucks. If they can pull out two big wins, they would no longer be last in the Northwestern Division... I guess I know what I'm asking Santa for.

MN Wild beat Predators 5-3 and skate a great game

The Minnesota Wild have been skating really well, something that was very apparent on Saturday night, when the MN Wild took on the Nashville Predators in Nashville. Last night's win was the second time the MN Wild roster has handed to the Predators this week.

On Wednesday, the Wild played the Predators at the Xcel Energy Center, beating them 5-4 in overtime. Last night the Wild skated even more confidently and beat the Predators 5-3, though critics said the Wild dominated the game more than the score appears.

Wild Coach Todd Richards seemed pleased with his team and will spend this week on the road with his team on the 5 game road series. MN Wild Tickets are available to all of these games, perhaps an early gift from Santa?

MN Wild roster, give up skates for aprons to help at annual charity event

Wild Players helping serve dinner
The Minnesota Wild roster spent Monday off the ice and in the kitchen. Monday was the annual Wild About the Children event which is a benefit for the Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. This year's event was hosted by the MN Wild and R.F. Moeller Jeweler. The event which featured the MN Wild roster as celebrity waiters raised $100,000.

“We are grateful for the continued support of the Minnesota Wild and are proud to count them as part of our team at Children’s,” said Alan L. Goldbloom, MD, President and CEO of Children's of Minnesota. "Wild About Children is always a fun event, and it plays an important role in helping us provide the best care possible to all of the children and families that we serve."

Look for the MN Wild to be back on the ice the rest of this week as they take on the Predators and the Ducks at home.
