How's everyone doing this weekend?
I'm doing great myself in case you were wondering, because it's time for another Wild game day!
The Wild are coming off a well-deserved and much needed win over one of their new central division rivals, the Jets, going into tonight's game. Tonight will be another divisional battle, as your Wild will be taking on the Dallas Stars, or as many of us here in the State of Hockey call them, the former North Stars. Now that these 2 teams are in the same division, you can expect a battle to be there from the start.
It's great to see the Wild come out with the win Thursday night after all the scratching and clawing they did.
As usual, the game will be at 7. If you're able to make it out to the X tonight, make sure you're loud and you give those Stars fans hell.
Enjoy the game tonight, Wilderness!
