Continued: Souhan: Kane's brilliance trumps Wild's goalie du jour

• Curry was the nervous backup.

• Rob Laurie, signed off the street for a game when the team was in Los Angeles, has gone back to waiting for random phone calls from NHL teams.

Asked how he would prepare for a playoff game, Curry said, “I don’t know,” then laughed.

When he signed, Curry hoped to play in a regular-season game, and he did. Would he dare dream about the playoffs? “I haven’t gone that far,” he said Friday afternoon. “I’m just excited about the opportunity and supporting Bryz. I know he’s going to be great.”

This season, it’s accomplishment for a Wild goalie to simply be present.

 

Jim Souhan can be heard weekdays at noon and Sundays from 10 to noon on 1500 ESPN. His Twitter name is @SouhanStrib. jsouhan@startribune.com
