Minnesota Wild 3-2 Anaheim Ducks
Hockey Wilderness Three Stars
Stephane Veilleux (2 G)
- Andrew Brunette (1 G)
- Niklas Backstrom (38 shots, 36 saves)
Questions to Answer
- Can the Wild show some kind of consistency? Clearly not. But, this game was similar to the second and third periods against San Jose.
- What the hell happened to Niklas Backstrom? He rebounded nicely tonight, but that late goal was a joke. Not his fault. The defense needs to clean the crease. The Ducks were all over Backstrom all night long.
- Can the Wild stop Corey Perry? They changed the goal from Perry to Niedermayer, so Perry only has an assist.
- Who do we hate now that Moen, Pahlsson, Kunitz, Bertuzzi and May are no longer Ducks? Is it Pronger and only Pronger? It's certainly Pronger, but I think it's only Pronger.
- Is the window closed for the Ducks? Is it time for Pronger, Selanne and the Niedermayers to move on? The window is closed. This team is too old and needs to rebuild. Though, at least they reached the promised land.
