In case you haven't noticed, the Wild communications staff, including Ryan Stanzel, Glen Andresen, Carly Peters and others have been one of the more interactive forces in the NHL with regards to social media and web content. As a result, it's not surprising that they would eventually launch an interactive component to the broadcast, and coinciding with a live event is a fantastic way to kick it off. Hopefully it becomes a regular part of the Wild game experience.
