Good morning all. Second of back-to-backs tonight, this time against the Blue Jackets, who the Wild seem have absolutely no luck against. Reports are that Jose Theodore gets the start, so you will get your second look at the back-up netminder. You're all excited, right?
We'll see how many people show up in Columbus, as they have bee struggling to bring people in as of late. Not that the Wild can say much. An announced crowd of 17,000+ last night looked to us to be at most about 13,000. But hey, they sold 17,000+, so there is that.
To keep yourself entertained before the game, head over to Facebook and answer the Question of the Day. We have broken the 500 "likes" barrier, which means we have made it to the first tier of the prize give away. Congrats on that. Still a long way to go to reach the really good stuff, so keep suggesting the site to friends and get get to the next tier!
Also, create-a-caption. Only two yesterday? Two? I know you creative types are out there. Bring it.
Finally, consider a donation to the Hockey Wilderness Movember team. We are up to 18 members and $383. Thank you to everyone who has joined, and everyone who has donated.
