  • Iowa Wild Weekly Report: December 29th


    The most discouraging aspect of this weekend was that Iowa was unable to sustain their solid play. On Saturday, Gustafsson got the start in net against the Grand Rapids Griffins because Curry was called up to play for Minnesota. It didn't take long for the Griffins to score--only 14 seconds into the first. Tyler Graovac got the goal back a little more than 3 minutes later (from Hagel and Mitchell), but that was as good as the game would get for Iowa as Grand Rapids scored the next 8 goals. Iowa also got a meaningless power play goal with less than a minute in the game to make the final score 9 to 2. Gustafsson was pulled to start the 3rd period after giving up 8 goals on 27 shots. Before the game on Saturday, Coach Torchetti talked to the media about the coaching staff's focus on improving Gustafsson's consistency, particularly in back to back situations. I doubt that the performance against Grand Rapids was what he had in mind.
