Game day. Red Wings. You know you want to vomit.
Yesterday, the Wild said Josh Harding will get the start, in addition to the news that Greg Zanon and Clayton Stoner will be out with injuries. Tough break for the "worst defense in the league." The last time the Wild faced the Wings, they almost won. Well... Josh Harding almost won. The rest of the team didn't show up after the midpoint of the first period. Apparently it is too much work to play the whole game.
We'll see if there is any difference tonight. Don't count on it, though.The confidence runneth over.
