Wilderness Walk 5-4-2013: Come on, Man! Edition

USA TODAY Sports

Another sad day here in the Wilderness. The Wild are really between a rock and a hard place right now. They now trail 2 games to none in this tough series against the big bad Blackhawks. Unlike Tuesday night's game, the Wild did not score first, so I knew this game would be hard for us. I had pretty high hopes the Wild would win this "must-win" game, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. They fell to the Hawks 5-2 last night. The Wild return home for game 3 of the series on Sunday. Now, it's time for today's short and sad Walk:
