Wilderness Walk: 11-21-2013

The Minnesota Wild bounced back against the Ottawa Senators by bouncing back from a very ugly first period.

Hey, everyone.

As you know, the Wild came back from down 2-1 to win last night's game against Ottawa 4-3. Koivu had some late-game heroics for the second time in the last three games, but I don't want to re-type the same stuff over and over again. In case you didn't read my game recap from last night, I pretty much think that the Wild were lucky to scrape out a win last night, and that they'll need to be a hell of a lot better to keep winning.

Revolutionary, I know.

Anyway, the Wild have a couple of days off before continuing their road trip at Winnipeg, where they'll face such fierce goal scorers as Devin Setoguchi, and maybe Antti Miettinen. I can't remember if Mittens still plays for them.

I'm wiped, so let's get on to the Walk.
