The fans in Saint Paul came out to see the prospects, especially Mikael Granlund. As Glen Andresen of Wild.com says on the call, he didn't disappoint. Stick tap on the video to @FEL0096.
Rather than watching the idiots in Vancouver destroy their own city tonight, take in a viewing or 60 on the playoff montage from CBC. Great stuff. stick tap to Fel0096 for the video.
Tim Thomas continues to make his case to become the most popular goalie in Wild history. Add this to destroying Daniel Sedin in Game 3, and the Wild should probably invest in some Thomas sweaters for the Hockey Lodge. Stick tap on the video to Pro Hockey Talk.
Granlund's Sick Lacrosse Goal. Must See

From @TwoLinePass on Twitter comes this rather... um... unusual take on the Minnesota High School Hockey Tournament. If you are out there, dear video creator, please... seek help. This is, by far, one of the creepiest things I have ever witnessed in my life. So creepy, it had to be shared.

Video of the cheap shot elbow thrown at Jason Zucker yesterday. Zucker left the game, and was clearly dazed. The best guess is he has a concussion, but no official word has been released. Earlier today Zach Kassian was suspended for two games for a hit to the head that was nowhere near this level of cheap, late, nor full of malice. Marincin should be suspended for the rest of the tournament, in my opinion. Stick tap to Ola Alabi on Facebook for the video find. For a longer video, with slow motion replays, visit our friends at The Copper and Blue. Marincin happens to be an Oilers prospect. UPDATE (12:25PM): Marincin suspended for three games on top of the one game automatic suspension. That should about do it for the tournament for him.
I have... no words. This is, by far, the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Another great commercial from the Wild.
Bobby Ryan discusses his goal last night, including if he was taunting Koivu, if Mikko had anything to say to him, and just what exactly happened. The line about asking Saku what Mikko said is classic.
