Wilderness Walk for 3-22-2010


Off the top, let me offer a huge congratulations to the University of Minnesota-Duluth Women's hockey team. They won their fifth (FIFTH!!!) NCAA National Championship yesterday, and it took three overtimes to get it done. Amazing game, and has not seen the light of day on any news broadcast. However, this is the "State of Hockey" and this is a blog for the entire state (and beyond), not just the Twin Cities.

Congrats to them. A dynasty they have become. Just don't tell any of the main stream hockey guys. Five titles in ten years, they'll probably want to ban the NCAA.

So, with that...

Random Wild Picture of the Day:

Gamers & More:

Wild not about to abandon its remote playoff hopes | StarTribune.com - I love that the players are still believe. Don't you?

Wild still fighting for an NHL playoff spot with 4-3 victory over Calgary Flames - TwinCities.com - Brothers' take on the same story.

Though he's injured, Minnesota Wild defenseman Greg Zanon's game is the same - TwinCities.com - Zuper Zanon at it again.

Michael Russo's Sunday Insider: Walz eager to coach again | StarTribune.com - I think I missed this somehow, and that is really too bad. Walz deserves to coach again, and I have no idea why he was fired in the first place.
