  • Minnesota's victory in the most recent matchup of these teams moved it into a tie with Vancouver in points. They remain even heading into Monday's action, setting up a battle for sole possession of first place in the Northwest.

  • The offense has been clicking of late for Minnesota, which comes into this game off a home-and-home sweep of Colorado. Four different Wild scored in the first period alone Saturday afternoon in Denver, with Devin Setoguchi netting the first of his two goals and adding an assist on a Kyle Brodziak tally that opened up a 4-1 lead after 20 minutes. Niklas Backstrom didn't have an easy afternoon, as the Avalanche kept clawing back, but the Wild added some insurance and held on for a 6-4 victory.
  • It took all of six seconds after the opening puck drop Saturday for Alexandre Burrows to deposit a shot past Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard, but between then and the time Burrows scored again with 2:38 left in the third period

  • Fourth and final meeting of the regular season between these Northwest Division rivals. The Canucks won the first two, but the Wild prevailed 4-2 on March 10 as Zach Parise scored twice and set up the decisive goal by Jared Spurgeon.

I hope we come last in the league this year. We are injured and our team is just done. I want a top 5 pick in the draft.

There is no point in squeezing into the playoffs and losing.

We won't have to be last to have a top five pick, we can just miss the playoffs and have a chance at one.

Well I had tickets for the Detroit debacle and I left the game at the end of the second boring boring boring. Played apparently by amateurs who embarrassed their uniforms. I have tickets for the Minny game and tickets for the St Louis game and frankly don't want to go. Saturday night was enough to insult the least knowledgeable fan of the sport

You left at the end of the second when it was 2-1? Wow what a fan you are.

It's funny how the canucks coaching staff keeps saying how atrocious the pp is and they keep throwing the same players out there with the same plays over and over again!!!!!

Sedin-sedin-Hansen
Bieksa-garrison

Burrow-ebbett-Higgins
Raymond-edler

Give hammer a break, we need him playing hard minutes in the playoffs not useless minutes on the pp in the regular season

Not with his play in the last 5, but neither goalie is playing well so? I almost think they should start Lou the play Cory the next night. If Cory plays well then you run with him after that for his turn at a string of games.

They need a goalie trade now this is not fair to our goalies to not let them get into the roll of a #1. Instead of two #1's it's looking like two backups.

How do you not play Cory when Lou looks like Swiss cheese in the last 5, then Cory starts and it's the same story the other way around.

:lol:
Nowell Brown's PP is Gomez-esque,
couple soft goals again tonight will deflate the millionaires

whats so special about this game ?
i've only seen a 60 min effort once this year .
we usually get outplayed by teams on back to back nights.
playoffs will be a miracle with the 30 minute millionaires.

Canucks play 5 games in 7 nights starting tomorrow. If last night is any indication of anything, this is going to be a hellish week.

That being said, Canucks win 3-1 this game.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I hope your starting line-up is wrong.

Schneider better play, Ballard better draw back in.

And we better not have a third line of Sestito/Pinnizzotto - Ebbett - Weise :sick:

Why does a Minnesota defenseman have as many points as our leading scorer?


Because Ryan Suter is a stud.

Suter is averaging 0.78 assists per game this year (which is an NHL career high for him).
