Wild's Clutterbuck helped off ice
Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck had to be helped off the ice late in the third period with what appeared to be an injured left leg.

Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck had to be helped off the ice late in the third period of Thursday's 3-1 victory at Edmonton with what appeared to be an injured left leg.

Edmonton's Taylor Hall received a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct for his center-ice hit on Clutterbuck with 2:33 remaining in regulation. The two collided in the neutral zone; Clutterbuck was helped off the ice and was unable to put any weight on the leg.

"I really didn't feel like it was knee-on-knee at all," Hall said. "I thought I got him with hip or torso area. It was a weird play.

"It [stinks] to see him down, but I don't think it was a dirty play ... I don't think I led with my knee."

Wild coach Mike Yeo felt it was a dirty play by Hall.

"To me, what I saw was a player who didn't even look at the puck," he said. "It looked like he was trying to hurt a guy."
Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
