When Jonathon Blum started playing hockey, it wasn’t on the ice with a pair of skates like many of his more northern counterparts. The Long Beach, Cal., native started playing in tennis shoes on the cul-de-sac in front of his house with a ball, using the gutters as goals.

It’s not a do-or-die game for the Minnesota Wild, but after consecutive losses, it sure does feel that way. Currently holding the first Wild Card and seventh spot in the Western Conference, Minnesota is one point ahead of tonight’s opponent, the Phoenix Coyotes.

As the Minnesota Wild closes out its three-game road trip, the big story line is Zach Parise’s return to New Jersey to face his former team, the Devils. Wild.com ran a feature on Parise’s return including a WildTV video, here, so we won’t get into it in the Lighthouse. However, WildTV will post the video from Parise’s media scrum, which was thicker than New Jersey Turnpike traffic.

Two former New York Islanders, now wearing Minnesota Wild sweaters, will return to Long Island tonight. Forwards Matt Moulson and Nino Niederreiter had very different experiences with the Isles, but each will visit Nassau Coliseum for the first time since being traded.

For the first time in a long, long time, the Lighthouse took a stroll outside on its way to Xcel Energy Center for the Minnesota Wild’s morning skate. Yes, it seems spring is finally in the air (fingers crossed) and the Wild looks to warm up from its recent cold stretch, tonight hosting the New York Rangers.

Shootout points are fickle things in the National Hockey League. Win a shootout and the extra point, and everything is hunky-dory. Drop a couple shootouts in a row and suddenly you’re on a losing streak.

When Matt Cooke laced up his skates for his first National Hockey League game, he was nervous; the butterflies were thrashing around in his stomach like wet clothes in a dryer. Making it to 1,000 games might’ve been the furthest thing from his mind.

The dust might’ve settled from cyclone of moves that was yesterday’s National Hockey League Trade Deadline Day, but it’s still been a whirlwind couple of days for the Minnesota Wild’s newest members, Matt Moulson, Cody McCormick and Ilya Bryzgalov.
