STARS RALLY FOR WINTER CLASSIC COMEBACK VICTORY

With a green-clad majority of the 85,630 that packed Cotton Bowl Stadium urging them on, the Stars scored three times unanswered in a 5:37 span in the third period to reverse a 2-1 deficit and post a 4-2 victory over the Predators in the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic. Power-play goals by Mattias Janmark (0:58) and Alexander Radulov (5:06) gave the Stars the lead and Andrej Sekera provided the insurance marker at 6:35.

84 - 1985-86

83 - 2018-19

81 - 1986-87

75 - 2019-20

Devan Dubnyk Appears Ready To Return While Thinking Of His Wife

from Dane Mizutani of the Pioneer Press,

Sports are an escape for many. But that’s not how veteran goaltender Devan Dubnyk is looking at his return to the Wild net Thursday night.

Dubnyk, 33, has been away from the ice for the past month as he and his wife Jenn search for answers regarding a serious medical issue she has been dealing with. And he isn’t about to forget her situation.

It’s not really something I want to escape from,” he said. “You don’t want to forget about it. It’s good to be conscious about it. But I’m not going to be thinking about it in the middle of a game or something like that.”

Dubnyk hasn’t played in a game since a Nov. 16 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, leaving the Wild a few days later to be with his wife and three small children, and watching backup goaltenders Alex Stalock and Kaapo Kahkonen play solidly enough in his absence to turn the team’s prospects around.

Dubnyk has still practiced intermittently with the teammates whenever they’ve been in the Twin Cities, and after making the current road trip, it sounds like coach Bruce Boudreau is ready to throw him back into the lineup Thursday against the Arizona Coyotes.

A Bad Month For The Minnesota Wild Ends

from Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune,

How the Wild finished October is the same epitaph it will hang on the entire month, a mashup of touch-and-go execution and untimely breakdowns that has fanned frustration for a previously savvy, veteran club.

Most recently, this reality manifested itself as a 2-1 loss to the defending Stanley Cup champion Blues on Wednesday in front of an announced 18,096 at Enterprise Center that wrapped up a winless two-game tour of the Central Division.

Overall, the Wild is a grim 4-9 with only eight points — the team’s second-fewest ever for October behind the seven it earned from a 2-7-3 showing in its inaugural season in 2000-01.

“Flip the page and flip the calendar,” winger Zach Parise said. “Let’s start over in November.”
