Wilderness Walk for 3-23-2013: Game Day Edition

Let's see this awesome streak of ours continue! - Tom Szczerbowski

Good morning, Wilderness! What a great day it is! Another big weekend for the State of Hockey too. The WCHA Final Five started 2 days ago, and it continues tonight with Colorado College and Wisconsin, in the Broadmoor Trophy Championship game tonight at 7:10. Not only that, but this afternoon (because of that WCHA game), your Minnesota Wild take on the San Jose Sharks in another day game, this time at 1. Enjoy the game today, Wilderness! Now, let's take a Walk:

Wild News

Gameday preview: Wild vs. San Jose | StarTribune.com - Here's your usual pre-game literature.

Minnesota Wild: WCHA alums watching Final Five closely - Financial and Business News - MENAFN - Gotta love seeing the players keeping up with the teams they started on.

Minnesota Wild: Confidence up, Charlie Coyle fitting in on first line - TwinCities.com - Coyle is just doing phenomenal. He really knows how to contribute along with some of the other players on the first line.

Will the Minnesota Wild Dip into the 2013 College Free Agent Pool? - Gone Puck Wild - Wouldn't surprise me if they did.

Minnesota Wild: Josh Harding expects to return to practice soon - TwinCities.com - Let's hope. Backstrom has played in the last 9 games of ours, and Harding coming back to take his spot every once in a while would be nice. We also have another backup goalie, Matt Hackett, but he still has yet to play in a game this season.

Tending the Fields

Gamesheet: Houston at Oklahoma City - Mar 22, 2013 - Results of last night's Aeros game. The Aeros get the win over the Barons 3-2.

The Aeros return back home to take on the Rochester Americans tonight at 7:05.

Laxidasical Meanderings

For you lacrosse fans out there, your Minnesota Swarm don't have any games coming up in these next couple days, but they do have another game on Friday the 29th, against the Philadelphia Wings.

Blue Jackets too much for Flames 5-1 - Wow. Who could have thought a team like Columbus could get this hot?
