  • Erik Haula's season-saving goal powers Wild to 3-1 win over Florida


    It wasn't just the goal, Haula had buzzed all game. In the first period, he had a great scoring chance on a breakaway. He used his speed to set up a 2-on-1 chance for Nino Niederreiter that could've extended the lead, and he had the assist on Pominville's empty-net goal to seal the win for Minnesota. The Erik Haula we've seen these this month is the one that we saw at the University of Minnesota, the same one we saw down the stretch in 2014. A welcome sight for a team that's been awfully short on centers who can score.

    The Wild win puts them within 2 points of Colorado in the standings, and taking care of them at home on Tuesday night would go a long way for the Wild's playoff odds. With a red-hot Haula slicing through Colorado's porous defense the way that pretty much anything slices through Colorado's porous defense, Minnesota could find themselves back in the playoffs in no time.
