All Craig Leipold

Graeme Roustan: Today, we have Craig Leipold, the owner of the Minnesota Wild, on with us today for Sports Illustrated and The Hockey News. Thanks very much for joining us.

GR: You sit on the executive committee of the Board of Governors for the NHL. I know that a lot of owners call you to talk about all kinds of issues. How are the owners collectively doing, and how are their staffs doing in general?

CL: We have been talking in the last two weeks. I think there’s high value and understanding what other teams are going to be doing. I have been on the phone to other owners, and we’ve talked through situations and options that we’re looking at. I can say this: if there’s any way that we can get this season, jumpstart it back on the ice and at a minimum play the playoffs, that is the foremost direction that every team owner wants to go. We want to finish this season. I think all hockey fans can rest assured that our No. 1 priority – well, the No. 1 priority is safety and the health of our employees and our fans – but after that, we want to be playing hockey, and we’ll do everything we can to accomplish that. I think all the owners that I’ve spoken with individually and from what I have heard on with the Board of Governors conference calls is everyone feels the same way. Let’s see what we can do to get the season started in some format, make good decisions. And let’s see if we can still play hockey this season.

Bruce Boudreau On His Dismissal

from Michael Russo of The Athletic,

“For two days I haven’t shown my face because I don’t want a pity party,” Boudreau said during the sitdown over lunch. “Everybody knows me, so it’d be like, ‘Poor you.’”

But with his eyes subtly becoming wet, Boudreau, still trying to accept and digest the decision made by Wild general manager Bill Guerin, said, “It’s tough.”

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
