Brave The Wild Ep#167:Turning The Corner?

NHL

The Minnesota Wild have looked like a significantly different team of late, in particular the last few divisional games. Alex Staylock continues to stand on his head, and Devan Dubnyk returned in style vs Nashville! Mikael Granlund, who had been on an uptrend, exploded with a hat trick against Pekka Rinne!

Timberwolves Explosion Ep#214:He Who Dons 23

Jimmy Butler reminded us of the old number 23 from his former team with some Jordanesque like performances, especially against Denver this past week. The Wolves also enjoyed their first Christmas Day win, as Karl enjoyed some BBQ Chicken after some pretty explosive plays.

Purple Mafia Ep#259:Slipping Sliding Shutout

The Minnesota Vikings had their first regular season shutout since 1993 vs Detroit, and their first in Greenbay since 1971. This was an ugly game, as many passes were dropped, overthrown, and players were slipping and sliding everywhere possible.

Brave The Wild Ep#166:Boxed In

NHL

Stay out of the #@%&! box! As coach Bruce Boudreau said this past week, as endless penalties plagued the Wild time and time again. Puck possession, being short-handed, and stupid turnovers are the difference from this season to last, and it shows.

Timberwolves Explosion Ep#213:Alpha Dog

Through most of this season, Jimmy Butler has taken on the leadership role for this club, but no more so than this past week. Despite a not-so-good game against Phoenix, Butler took charge, even with a very sore back, drawing contact, and bringing the club back into the game. Against Portland, Jimmy was downright unbelievable, and in Denver, the true Alpha Dog scored all but a two of the Wolves final eight points.

Purple Mafia Ep#258:One Down, Two To Go

In a game that was pretty comfortable from opening kickoff, for the 20th time in Vikings history, the Purple are division champions. That’s one title down, and two to go, including the NFC and ultimately the Superbowl title.

Brave The Wild Ep#165:Locking Down Wins

NHL

Alex Staylock had a week he will not soon forget. The Wild goaltender was in net against his former team the San Jose Sharks for the first time, and survived a third period onslaught from the ever talented Brent Burns, and Thomas Hertl among others. Dubnyk would have to leave the Calgary game after stopping ten Flames shots, Staylock held down the fort, leading to another win. With Dubnyk still out, Staylock would get yet more satisfaction, shutting out the other team that pushed him away, with a 2-0 win vs Toronto.

Timberwolves Explosion Ep#212:Getting Personal

There was a lot of extracurricular activity this week, along with a winning record for the Timberwolves. After a not so interesting win over Dallas, things got a little personal between Karl-Anthony Towns and 76ers star Joel Embiid, and what Embiid said may have lit a fire under K.A.T, who destroyed Sacramento the following game. Kevin Garnett is back to spewing more venom towards Glen Taylor, which is getting pretty old to say the least.

Purple Mafia Ep#257:Simply Not Our Day

When we heard that center Pat Elflein would be ruled out for the game, your host knew the Vikings were in trouble. What has been the biggest difference from last year to this year? Pass protection and run blocking, both of which were questionable at best, especially when team MVP Riley Reiff was carted off when an apparent ankle injury. It felt like the whole team was off throughout the game as Theilen was dropping easy catches, the run defense had major gaffs, giving up two 60 yard runs, and even Marcus Sherels nearly lost a fumble on the return.

Brave The Wild Ep#164:Dr. Dumba And Mr. Hyde

NHL

The Minnesota Wild came out of the past week with a winning record, as Matt Dumba had two overtime goals vs the hated Blue and Anahiem Ducks. Dumba, Dubnyk and the Wild had an incredibly sloppy third period in L.A, as Marian Gaborik looked as healthy as he’s been in years, burying his 400th career goal along the way.
