HWP 122: Everybody Hurts

We break down an injury-filled week for the Minnesota Wild. Can the team survive?

NHL: Minnesota Wild at Chicago Blackhawks
*Record Scratch* Yup. That’s me. You’re probably wondering how I got here...
David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Wild took 3 of 4 points this week, but things are looking down in the State of Hockey. Injuries, injuries, injuries. More than half of the Minnesota Wild's Top-9 is out of the lineup for the near future, and it's most of what we talk about today. Is it kind of a bummer? Yeah. But we try to have some fun on this week's episode, regardless.

Topics include:

  • Injuries to Nino Niederreiter, Charlie Coyle, and Marcus Foligno
  • The Wild being able to gut out a devastating victory in Chicago
  • Breaking down Jason Zucker's controversial assist
  • Minnesota blowing a lead against Columbus
  • Landon Ferraro's first goal
  • Devan Dubnyk coming up short when he's needed most
  • Are these injuries dooming the Wild?
  • Should we change our minds about Chris Stewart?
  • Looking for the silver lining after this week
  • Luke Kunin debuts- should he be in a bigger role?
  • Checking in on Tyler Ennis
  • Can the Wild make a move for reinforcements?

And more!
