Big win, eh, folks? The Wild are officially, for the moment, in 7th place in the West. On Twitter last night, Wild PR says people on the bus were talking about how they were only "2 points out of fourth." Great attitude to have, and the Western Conference best be on notice.
While the Wild are down in the standings a bit, they are playing better hockey than they have all year, they're hot, and they're coming for you. Doubts about a playoff spot? I wouldn't have any right now. It's just not worth it to doubt this team anymore. Ha!
No game today, just memories. Use this time to catch up on your reading, and to answer the Facebook Question of the Day. Enjoy your day, folks.
