- In case you haven’t heard (unlikely), the Wild fired Bruce Boudreau on Friday. Dean Evason is now taking over as interim head coach. [Hockey Wilderness]

- With Boudreau out of the picture, the Wild are going to embark on am extensive search for a new head coach this offseason. Luckily, there are some excellent candidates looking for work. [Hockey Wilderness]

- The Wild also played a game on Saturday! Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear the firing of Boudreau did much to invigorate the team. [Hockey Wilderness]

- The Hurricanes are going to host a Stadium Series game in Raleigh next season, so that will be fun. [Canes Country]
