5 Questions

  1. Last time the Hawks were in town, the Wild managed to be the first team to get 2 pts from them. Can they do it again?
  2. Granlund and Coyle have had really good chemistry together between the AHL and the NHL. Is tonight another showing like it was in Columbus?
  3. The blue line was pretty stronger on Sunday. Can they keep it up?
  4. How silly does Patrick Kane make the Wild look?
  5. Is this a good game that showcase why the Wild and Hawks could be future division "rivals"?
    The Wild host the Chicago Blackhawks tonight in the final match between these two teams in the regular season. With the Hawks clinching a playoff berth, it's possible that they don't spread themselves too thin, and let the Wild have the 2pts here tonight.
    Who am I kidding?! The Hawks are hungry for more points, and there's no way they take it easy on the Wild tonight, who are going to have to battle hard all night to get the win. Should be a great game.
