Stars-Wild series emotional for Minnesota fans

Many have not forgiven North Stars' move to Dallas 23 years ago

by Dan Myers / NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota North Stars alumni did not know it back in February, but their return to the ice as part of the 2016 Coors Light Stadium Series weekend might have rekindled the state's disdain for the franchise that left town for Dallas in 1993.

An unseasonably comfortable mid-February afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium saw the return of the iconic green and gold "N" logo to the ice for the first time in more than two decades.

Wild focus on power play to kickstart offense

Minnesota has one goal in two games against Dallas in Western Conference First Round

by Dan Myers / NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- If the Minnesota Wild are going to hold serve on home ice in their Western Conference First Round series against the Dallas Stars, they must find a way to create more offense. 

Forwards Zach Parise and Thomas Vanek are still out with injuries so the Wild, who trail the best-of-7 series 2-0 after losing 2-1 in Game 2 on Saturday, believe the best way to score more could come via the power play. 

Minnesota's only goal in the series came late in Game 2 when defenseman Marco Scandella blasted a slap shot from the point past Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen while on the power play. Until that point, however, the Wild's man-advantage units were rather quiet.
