From the Rink: Wild seeks to bring road success back to St. Paul

Minnesota enters having won last two games of California road trip over the weekend

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- After a week in California, the Wild will try and bring momentum gained on the road back to Minnesota on Tuesday when it plays the Calgary Flames at Xcel Energy Center.

The Wild won the final two games of the trip west -- both in overtime -- answering the bell when it needed to.

After losing a third-period lead against the Los Angeles Kings in the trip lid-lifter last Tuesday, a game the Wild eventually lost 5-2, Minnesota was able to extend games to overtime in each of the final two, winning on a Matt Dumba goal in Anaheim and one by Nino Niederreiter in San Jose.

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

SAN JOSE -- It was a bit of an odd morning for Wild goaltender Alex Stalock, who entered SAP Center preparing to start Sunday's game against the San Jose Sharks.

Stalock has entered this building plenty over the years but has never done so, as a visitor, preparing to take the ice.

The South St. Paul native was a fourth-round pick of the Sharks in the 2005 NHL Draft. He played in his first NHL game in the building, in front of the same fans who will be cheering against him tonight.

Zucker maintaining strong start to season

With All-Star Game buzz beginning to build around the league, Zucker stakes claim for trip next month

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

ANAHEIM -- You'll never hear Jason Zucker talk about individual honors and awards. When he was named the NHL's First Star of the Week last month, Zucker sort of shrugged it off and smiled.

It's why you won't head Zucker trumpeting a desire for an appearance at the NHL All-Star Game next month, despite the fact his resume, as it currently stands, makes him a worthy candidate to play in the game.

"No, for me, we need to win games and that's what it comes down to right now," Zucker said Saturday. "Anything that I can to contribute to us winning games is what I'm going to do."
