The view from Minnesota - LA Kings Insider


Michael Russo: Wild takes over 3rd place in Central Division with 4-1 victory over LA

“The Wild, which beat Calgary the night before, was running on fumes in the second and third periods. But the Wild defended well, and as usual, Dubnyk was there to cover up for heavy legs by providing back-to-back security.”

“The Niederreiter-Koivu-Stewart line was solid for a second game in a row and it has been for awhile. As I wrote last week, Stewart’s arrival has allowed Yeo to go with a consistent first, second and third line every night.”

Tom Powers: Minnesota Wild are looking hard to beat

“If there is a player more valuable to his team in the NHL, I’d like to see him. Dubnyk fits the true definition of an MVP — maybe not the best player but the most valuable.”
