Is it just me, or has Backstrom looked a little better in shootouts this year? - Frederick Breedon
A nice shootout win on the road last night, coming back to Minnesota for a little home cooking against the Canucks tonight.
Good morning WILDerness! And a wonderful morning it truly is! 2 points on the road and a quick turn around for a game tonight back home against the Canucks. I don't know about you guys, but I thought my TV was broken last night. It seemed every so often it would start making this low pitched "boo" sound throughout last nights game. I could not for the life of me figure out what was going on. But after the game it stopped so all is well.
So we got it done in an extra point game on the road, and bring in some real syrup eaters tonight. Apparently the Canucks have this thing against winning on Sundays too, so lets see if that trend continues tonight.
This is late, and I have nothing more to say, enjoy the links!
