The Wild gave up six unanswered goals during a 6-1 loss to the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena. The Wild got on the board first when Connor Dewar lit the lamp in the middle of the first period, but the Predators scored two goals in the next minute to take the lead for good. Minnesota surrendered three goals in the third period to hand Nashville the win. The Wild are in sixth place in the Central Division with 62 points and a 28-26-and-6 record. They visit the Blues tomorrow.


The Timberwolves go for their fourth win in a row when they host the Sacramento Kings at the Target Center tonight. The Wolves are coming off a 110-101 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. Minnesota is in first place in the Western Conference at 42-and-17. Tonight's game tips off at 7:00PM.


The Vikings are in the market for a new starting running back. ESPN is reporting that the Purple cut running back Alexander Mattison yesterday. Mattison was expected to take over as the Vikings workhorse last season after the team parted ways with Dalvin Cook, but he struggled throughout the season and eventually lost the starting job to Ty Chandler. He ran for 700 yards and scored three receiving touchdowns last year.


The Minnesota Twins had just five hits during a 5-0 Spring Training loss to the Atlanta Braves at CoolToday Park. Brooks Lee had a double in the losing effort, and Chris Paddack two no-hit innings. Kody Funderburk was charged with the loss after allowing three earned runs and one unearned run in an inning-and-two-thirds of relief. Joe Ryan starts for Minnesota against Boston today.


The Bucks cruised past the Hornets 111-99 in a rematch from Charlotte. Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for a double-double. Malik Beasley netted 19 points as Milwaukee won its second straight game against Charlotte. The Bucks are second in the Central Division and will visit the Bulls in a late start tonight.


College basketball returns tomorrow. Wisconsin is 18-and-10 and hosts Number-16 Illinois, Number-5 Marquette is 22-and-6 and visits Number-12 Creighton, while the 16-and-14 Milwaukee Panthers wrap up the regular season at home against Green Bay.


The Brewers fell to the Rangers 7-5 in spring training action from Surprise. Joey Ortiz crushed a two-run homer in the sixth inning, while Joe Ross got the start and gave up one run over two innings of work. Milwaukee is now 1-and-5 in exhibition play and will host the Padres this afternoon.


Caitlin Clark is going pro. The Iowa women's basketball star announced yesterday that she will be declaring for the WNBA draft, deciding against coming back for a final season of college. Clark is the favorite to sweep national individual honors again in 2024, and she broke Kelsey Plum's NCAA all-time scoring record earlier this season. She is only 18 points away from passing Pete Maravich for the all-time record for men or women. The Indiana Fever hold the top pick in April's draft.
