    What is Spurgeon’s no move clause this off season?

    It’s a full no move for 2 more years. 10 team no trade starts July of 2024

    Probably a better chance of getting Sergei Federov to come play with Kirill than Spurgeon going elsewhere.

    Schenn has raised his game on being a prick

    Schenn has so many UND qualities, he would have been a perfect fit up in Grand Forks.

    Another phantom penalty on the Wild, so the refs plan is to keep the PPs even no matter what

    That’s pretty much always the plan. Game management

    The Wild are having a really difficult time gaining the zone and then staying there the few times that they do. It’s been frustrating to watch.

    Well hopefully they find a way to tighten back up, and Kaprisov scores five times.

    My biggest pet peeve with the way the NHL calls games. They let blatant interference go on dump ins. It would really create more offense if they started calling it tighter.

    I made that same observation after that game. Wild just got out hustled and out willed. Jost been good but not scoring. Big whiff.

    Tonight their D zone coverage as a team was terrible. Brodin, dumba, spurgeon beat all night in front of their net. Terasenko quiet until tonight…then 3 goals in the third.

    What a buzz kill. Kaprisov the only guy who can score. Fiala line mostly ineffective, which is a huge negative for this team

    1 in 5 chance of winning series statistically.

    Another Minnesota team built for the regular season 🤣

    For my friends that like the Wild’s sake, I hope they pull it out, but it’s awfully hard to have hope in this state.

    MN fans have watched their big 4 teams advance in the playoffs 5 times in the last 17 years.

    I feel like you could have told me it was a Wild playoff game from 8 years ago or 4 years ago and I would have had no trouble believing you. Every year it’s the same thing. It would almost be impressive if it wasn’t so tragic.

    Not a fan of our D. Clear the man and there’s no shot.  We need Big body movers.   Kaprisov is amazing, need some depth on offense. I don’t think the Wild can win when only Kaprisov scores.

    let’s go wild!!  They can win in st L and bring it back here for one more!!  Would love to see them win.

    Well, the Wild have 4 goals in their 3 losses…and KK has 3 of those. I guess we should be happy there is still a game 6 victory to hope for.

    Winner of Game 5 is 80% in favor of taking the series.

    That feels about right, given that my optimism is running about 1 in 5.

    I was hoping this team might finally rise up in the playoffs and take that next step…not yet apparently.

    Words can’t describe how bad this loss sucked. Not shocked Wild lost, but very surprised “the way” they lost. Just goes to show that regular season success (often) has very little correlation to PLAYOFF success, ESPECIALLY relative to MN professional sports teams!

    It’s been a little weird. In the Wild wins they pretty much dominated. These past two games, it’s almost like St. Louis threw a switch, and there’s nothing Minnesota can do.

    Teresako, for example, hasn’t done much all series. Then he gets a pure hat trick in the third period last night to salt the game away…on the road! Do you think Fiala, the Wild player who hasn’t done much, will return the favor in St. Louis?

    I hope they can get something for Dumba in the off season. Fiala is an astonishing talent, and if he is unloaded, it may be that Guerin has little faith in him as a playoff player. He practically carried the team in the last month of the season and, then, *poof*.

    interesting, I heard the same stat on the radio broadcast, only they said the winner of game 3 won 80% of the series….🤷‍♀️

    The season comes down to TONIGHT. They need to prevail & force game 7. As entertaining & successful as the regular season WAS…if they lose tonight & go into the night a 1st round playoff loser…this season will have a distinctly bitter taste.

    Many thought this series was going 7 games. We have the opportunity to fulfill that tonight. I’m not going pessimistic on this team now, they’ve made comebacks all year long. New game tonight!

    Not a big call but I believe at least one of Deslauriers & Duhaime come out. Deslauriers provides zero value at this point laboring around the ice, he can’t even be physical because he is so many steps behind. Duhaime unfortunately has been MIA for quite sometime.

    I expect Bjugstad to get in & possibly Dewar. Jost has been noticeable in his role this series might as well get more speed/skill with him at this point.

    It appears that Talbot is in the net as he was the 1st goalie off the ice. Goligoski is replaced by Kulikov.

    Another reason to not like St Louis is their “Let’s Go Blues” chant is eerily similar to a college hockey teams chant by their fanbase…

    But we initiated the contact in front and it looked like he was just flailing out trying to keep his balance. I don’t see why they thought anything needed to be called.

    Once again, five on five they’re far and way the better team. They looked pretty good in that twenty minutes. That goal, though? Yeeeeeeeesh. I’d rather have Fleury’s rebounds than that.

    Playoffs sure haven’t benefitted Fiala.

    I wouldn’t have said this during the season but can they get something for him, maybe a big D?

    oh god… Wild defense sucks

    Bringing Kulikov back in was clearly a mistake.
