Zucker scores twice to help Wild earn 4-1 road win over Florida

Can the Wild stop the red-hot Nick Bjugstad? All Star Games are often boring not only because they don’t really matter but in many cases the players are not trying that hard.  In NHL All Star games, what often makes them boring is the ridiculous unselfishness of some of the players.  While no one likes a puck hog, players often overhandle the puck or try to pass one too many...

Pass-ive play costs Wild as they snap 4-game winning streak in 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay
