From the Rink: Wild will try to maintain emotional edge against Senators

Minnesota coming off one of its most impressive wins of the season Saturday against Tampa Bay

by Dan Myers @DanMyers / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- It's not difficult to get up for a game when the opponent is arguably the top team in the NHL.

The challenge for the Wild now, as it navigates the doldrums of the regular season, will be playing with that same emotion against teams that aren't at that level and aren't ones Minnesota is battling for playoff positioning with.

"That's the biggest key for us," said Wild forward Jason Zucker. "We need to make sure we play our game, because if we play our game, I think we can win a lot of hockey games down the stretch. Especially with the All-Star Game coming, we need to make sure we get these two wins and have a good break and carry momentum after that as well."

Hockey Day Minnesotans: Wild celebrates in style

Led by Prosser, all four active skaters from State of Hockey tally points in Saturday's victory over Tampa Bay

by Phil Ervin / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- A remote, a Rau, a return and a "Skol" chant.

This was a day made for Minnesotans. And those on the Wild roster apparently weren't immune to the festivities.

On the 12th annual Hockey Day Minnesota, all four active skaters from the State of Hockey found the scoresheet in the Wild's 5-2 victory Saturday over league-leading Tampa Bay. Defenseman Nate Prosser of Elk River did that and more, rifling home the eventual game winner at 7:11 of the second period after energizing his club and crowd by dropping the mitts with Ryan Callahan just minutes into the contest.

ST. CLOUD -- Derrick Brown has the unique perspective of becoming the first high school coach to guide two different teams on Hockey Day Minnesota.

Three years ago in St. Paul, Brown coached Luverne High School when it lost 6-5 to St. Paul Johnson at Holman Field. 

On Saturday, Brown was on the other side, as his St. Cloud Cathedral Crusaders scored an 8-3 win over crosstown rival St. Cloud in the Hockey Day opener at Lake George.
