Nino Niederreiter

Wild Roar
The Minnesota Wild have turned their home ice into a deafening, discouraging place for opponents to play in the playoffs.

For the second straight game, they dominated the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
Unlikely Hero
Nino Niederreiter hesitated for just a moment after scoring the winning goal, not sure whether what he just saw had actually occurred.

It happened, all right. His Minnesota teammates suddenly skating over to mob him made the moment real.
Missed Opportunities
The Vancouver Canucks are at the point in the season where every loss could end their playoff hopes. Those hopes are still alive after a big road win over Minnesota.
Back To Winning
Zach Parise broke a tie early in the third period, and Darcy Kuemper stopped 29 shots to break the franchise rookie victory record in the Minnesota Wild's 2-1 win over the New York Rangers on Thursday night.
Nino Wins It
Nino Niederreiter's goal with 2:44 left in overtime lifted the Minnesota Wild past the Nashville Predators 3-2 on Thursday night, and the tipped shot went between the legs of Roman Josi, who will play with Niederreiter next week for Switzerland in the Olympics.
Wild Keep Winning
Darcy Kuemper made 34 saves, Jared Spurgeon had two assists in his return from injury and the Minnesota Wild defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Back On Track
Minor league call-up Darcy Kuemper looked totally different than he did in his two other appearances with the Minnesota Wild this season.

Kuemper made 17 of his 39 saves during the first period in his fifth NHL start, a 2-1 victory over the Kings on Tuesday night.
