The Minnesota Wild extended their point streak to five games but lost to Buffalo 3-2 in overtime at the Xcel Energy Center on Saturday. Joel Eriksson Ek and Declan Chisholm both scored in the third period to give Minnesota a 2-1 lead, but the Sabres tied it up with under a minute left in regulation when Dylan Cozens lit the lamp. The Sabres scored in the second minute of OT to seal Minnesota's fate. Minnesota remains in sixth place in the Central Division with 56 points and a 25-23-and-6 record. The Wild host Vancouver this afternoon.


Karl-Anthony Towns put on a clinic during the NBA All-Star Game. The Timberwolves forward finished with a game-high 50 points off the bench, but the Western Conference lost to the Eastern Conference 211-186 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Towns added eight rebounds and three assists in the losing effort, while Anthony Edwards finished the game with just four points. Towns, Edwards, and the Wolves host Milwaukee on Friday.


The Minnesota Twins will have their All-Star center fielder back in the outfield sooner than anticipated. Manager Rocco Baldelli told reporters over the weekend that he plans to pencil Byron Buxton's name in center field during the first week of Spring Training. Buxton spent all of the 2023 campaign as the team's designated hitter as he recovered from a knee injury. He had surgery in October and says that he is fully healthy heading into the 2024 season. The Twins will have their first Spring Training game on Saturday against the Pirates.


Another member of the 2010's Lynx dynasty could be joining the Basketball Hall of Fame soon. Forward Seimone Augustus was announced as a finalist for the Naismith Hall of Fame during the NBA All-Star Weekend in Indianapolis. Augustus played with Minnesota from 2006 until 2019, helping the team win four WNBA titles and making the All-Star game eight times. She averaged 15-point-four-points per game during her 15-year career. The 2024 Hall of Fame class will be revealed on April 6th.


The Minnesota Gophers snapped a two-game losing streak by beating Rutgers 81-70 at Williams Arena. The game was tied at halftime before Minnesota outscored the Scarlet Knights 44-33 the rest of the way. Pharrel Payne scored 21 points and pulled down 11 rebounds in the victory, while Elijah Hawkins chipped in with 16 points. The Gophers are in seventh place in the Big Ten with a 7-and-7 conference record and a 16-and-9 mark overall. Minnesota hosts Ohio State on Thursday.
