  • Wild win pre-season game number 2 over Jets 1-0


    The Minnesota Wild are now 2-0 in the 2017 preseason. Yeah, none of it really matters as players are fighting for spots, not playing with their normal parings, and the games don’t mean points in the standings. Hell, the Avalanche went 6-0 in the preseason last year and then finished a whopping last place in the regular season. They also lost the draft lottery after that season.

    It’s not like we can really make assumptions quite yet regarding the team, but we can talk about the performances on the ice. So here we go.


    Not So Good

    4. Luke Kunin isn’t really helping himself. Look, I don’t think he looks out of place by any means. I just want him to score and be the stud I think he’s going to be. He didn’t put away a couple of the chances he had on Thursday night’s game, and didn’t take as many shots as I was expecting him to take. It’s probably me just expecting too much, but I just haven’t seen what I thought I was going to see yet in these last two games.

    5. The game as whole was just boring. And yeah, I know it’s preseason. Preseason in any sport is mostly boring, but this game had little flow to it, and even less offense. It’s not like any of the goalies were peppered with pucks. I am really hoping that Saturday’s game against the Avalanche features a bit more action.


    That’s it for preseason Game 2 and the Wild are victorious again.
