Is there anything left to say after last night? I really don't think there is, so we'll just move forward. Dallas tonight, in a building the Wild haven't won in since Eisenhower was President. No matter how optimistic you can muster being, the numbers don't lie. The Wild are terrible in Dallas.
Onward and upward though. The Wild need the win, and they need to not give two points to Dallas. If they can do it or not is a totally different conversation.
While you ponder the chances the Wild have in Dallas, visit Facebook for the Question of the Day. Also, take a look at the fine Camo Sweater auction for Defending the Blueline. You know you want one, and they take credit cards. Just sayin.
