Minnesota "Wild" @Toronto Maple Leafs: Game Recap

Indeed.

Minnesota "Wild" 1 - 4 Toronto Maple Leafs

One of the few requirements here at SBNation is that we provide game recaps within a certain time frame after a game is played in which a team we cover has participated. Thankfully, there is a loophole. If you can prove to us that the Minnesota Wild actually participated in this game, we will gladly provide a game recap.

Rather than waste your precious time on a fairy tale, we simply invite you to visit our friends at Pension Plan Puppets. From what we can gather, the Maple Leafs actually participated in a game this evening.

  2. How does Backstrom look in his return? Not good.
  3. Justin Falk sits. Can Zanon steal his spot? Not a chance.
  4. How well does the Wellman - Cullen - Clutterbuck line work? Not any better than anyone else, no.
