Wild's Spurgeon Collects Two Points In Game 4

News: Jared Spurgeon had an assist and a goal in Friday's Game 4 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The two points were Jared Spurgeon's first since scoring a game-tying goal late in third period of Game 7 during the Wild's first-round series with the Avalanche. Among the team's defensemen, Spurgeon typically plays second fiddle on the offensive end to star blueliner Ryan Suter, but he's been a solid contributor this postseason with three goals and two assists in 11 games.

News: Jared Spurgeon will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Blues.

Jared Spurgeon is seeing big-time minutes beside Ryan Suter and is now up to five goals, 19 assists and a plus-11 rating in 60 games this season, so people outside of St. Paul are finally noticing this kid. You should too.

News: Jared Spurgeon potted his first goal of the year Tuesday, a second-period power-play marker in a loss to the Predators.
Analysis: It was also his first point of the year. The 23-year-old Jared Spurgeon has nifty offensive skills, but has yet to break out as a consistent performer at the NHL level. With the time he's seeing on the man advantage this year, though, we could be seeing the start of something here.
