Why Minnesota Struggles in Overtime

Sunday’s overtime victory over the Edmonton Oilers can be considered a bit of an anomaly. Since the new format was put in place, three-on-three has been a major thorn in the side of the Minnesota Wild as they are currently 3-11 overall in such contests.

If you follow the NHL (which I assume you do since you found this article), you’re probably aware that Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk has been really good over the past couple years. What you might not know is just how good he has been since joining the Wild back in 2014-15. Even Wild fans may be surprised with how Dubnyk stacks up against the rest of the NHL’s goalies...

Bryan Bickell deserves John Scott Treatment for this season’s NHL All-Star Game

John Scott at the All-Star Game last season was great. It started as a joke but grew into something transcendent, like buffalo chicken on pizza or The Ove Glove. Scott scored some goals, was named MVP, received a check for a million bucks and will have his life turned into a movie.
