Wilderness Walk: Christmas Break Edition

Paul Bereswill

Your Minnesota Wild enter a short Christmas break at the low point of the season.

Another road game, another loss. It is becoming quite the annoying broken record for this squad. Your Minnesota Wild dropped another stinker in Philadelphia against the Flyers. It was nice to see their performance on the road was not affected by Zach Parise taking a night off as he's still nursing that bruised foot suffered way back in November.

We still have a lot of games left to figure out how to play on the road, and this ship desperately needs to be righted and in a hurry or you can kiss any hopes of the playoffs goodbye.

I would like to wish all of you the merriest of Christmas's. It is a great present to be able to interact with all of you in this forum. Thank you for being who you are, I really appreciate it!
