Kuemper let Claude Giroux tie the game on Thursday with just three and a half minutes remaining in the third period, but Jason Zucker's last-minute goal propelled the WIld to their fourth straight victory.

Darcy Kuemper stopped all three shots he faced in Minnesota's 4-3 overtime win over Winnipeg.

Kuemper only faced three shots because he entered the game midway through the third period after the Wild gave Niklas Backstrom the hook. Minnesota had a 3-0 lead going into the third period before the Jets stormed back to tie things up and force overtime. Kuemper is clearly the Wild's number one option in goal.

Nov 15 - 4:50 PM

Despite his poor play as of late, we expect Darcy Kuemper to start in goal against Dallas Saturday afternoon.

There is no official word from the Wild as to who is going to be between the pipes. If it were any other opponent we would speculate that Niklas Backstrom would get the call after Keumper was pulled after allowing two goals on the first two shots he faced Thursday night. However, Backstrom has a 1-8 record against the Stars, so Minnesota coach Mike Yeo may stay with Kuemper for now.

Darcy Kuemper was yanked from Thursday's game after he allowed two goals on two shots in just 6:24 of playing time.

His horrible start put Niklas Backstrom between the pipes for the rest of the game. Backstrom stopped 25 of the 26 shots he faced the rest of the way to earn his second win of the season.

Minnesota netminder Darcy Kuemper was on the losing end of a 3-1 decision against New Jersey on Tuesday night.

Kuemper played well in the game, allowing just two goals on 22 shots, but his teammates did little to support him. The loss is the third consecutive defeat for the goalkeeper and drops his record to 6-5-0. His GAA remains impressive at 1.99 while his .915 save percentage won't hurt you.
Nov 11 - 10:13 PM

Darcy Kuemper will start for Minnesota on Tuesday.

Kuemper is looking to snap his two-game losing streak. He has a 6-4-0 record, 1.99 GAA, and .916 save percentage in 10 contests this season.
Nov 11 - 12:19 PM

Darcy Kuemper yielded four goals on 31 shots in the Wild’s 4-1 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday night.

We would give Kuemper a pass in this one because the Bell Centre is never kind to opposing players, but he has not been all that good lately. In fact, over his last six starts, he has recorded a save percentage over .900 just one time. Overall, he has a 1.99 goals-against average (sixth in the NHL) and .916 (20th) save percentage. He’s proof that GAA often does a poor job describing a goalie's performance.
Nov 8 - 10:42 PM

It will be Darcy Kuemper back in goal against the Canadiens Saturday night.

He got Thursday night off but will be back between the pipes Saturday. Kuemper if coming off one of his poorer starts of the season Tuesday-- a 4-1 loss to the Penguins in which he stopped only 21 shots.
Nov 8 - 1:15 PM

Darcy Kuemper and the Wild weren't great in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

Kuemper allowed three goals on 21 shots in the defeat, which stops his win streak before it can reach three games. The tough outing is a small blip on the radar for Minnesota's top netminder, who still sports a 6-3-0 record to go along with a 1.77 GAA and a .922 save percentage.
Nov 5 - 1:21 AM

Darcy Kuemper will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Kuemper will be going for his third straight win when he takes on the Pittsburgh Penguins. He has a 1.62 GAA and .930 save percentage in eight contests this season.
