Both the St. Cloud State Huskies (13-14-1) and the Minnesota Golden Gophers (17-9-3) men's hockey teams scored wins over conference opponents tonight. The Huskies skated to a 4-3 win over Nebraska-Omaha at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. Minnesota beat Penn State 2-1 on the road.
The Minnesota Timberwolves (12-42) defeated the visiting Phoenix Suns (29-26) 111-109 tonight at the Target Center in Minneapolis. In their first game following the All-Star break, the Wolves were led by Kevin Martin with 28 points. Andrew Wiggins added another 20.
Running back Adrian Peterson has told ESPN that he feels 'uneasy' about a return to Minnesota and playing for the Vikings. He says he didn't like how the fans & team turned on him during his troubles. Give me a break AP. Unfortunately, some thought whipping your kid was a bad thing.
Kevin Garnett is returning to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Timberwolves sent Thad Young to the Brooklyn Nets in a trade this afternoon, just before the NBA's trade deadline. The Wolves drafted Garnett back in 1995, and he subsequently spent the next twelve years of his career in Minnesota.
Ok, I know I'm a biased Minnesota Vikings fan, and that Adrian Peterson has struggled through some tough times of late, but really? He's not among the top-ten running backs of all-time? Sorry, but gotta call bul#$^it.
The Minnesota Wild (29-21-7) picked up a crucial road win last night, beating the Calgary Flames (32-22-4) 3-2 in overtime. The win leaves the Wild one point behind in the race for the final Wild Card playoff spot currently held by the Los Angeles Kings.
The Wild will look to shake off Monday's loss in Vancouver when they head to Calgary for a pivotal matchup with the Flames Wednesday. The Canucks topped Minnesota 3-2 Monday to snap the Wild's ten game streak of games in which they earned at least one point.
The Minnesota Wild (28-21-7) saw their ten-game points streak come to an end last night, falling on the road to the Vancouver Canucks (32-21-3) 3-2. Nino Niederreiter scored both Wild goals. It was Minnesota's first loss in regulation in nearly a month. The Canadian road trip continues tomorrow night in Calgary.
Since losing six straight games in games in mid-January, the Minnesota Wild (28-20-7) have won 10 of their last 13, including ten straight games (8-0-2) picking up at least one point -- tying a team record. The Wild will be looking to break that record tonight against the Vancouver Canucks (31-21-3) in the first game of a crucial road trip.
