Minnesota Wild vs Phoenix Coyotes: Post Game

Christian Petersen

Drunks and poems is all we have

Most everyone is drunk and/or passed out at this point and I'm fighting off yet another allergy attack, so this will be short and sweet.

The Wild came up HUGE in a "must win game" tonight against Phoenix, and walked away with 2 points, and gave up none in a regulation win in Phoenix.

Dany Heatley was a healthy scratch for the first time in his NHL career, and with the way the team played the last 30 minutes of the game it's hard to see how bringing him back in would be justified (with the exception of Velleux maybe).

The penalty kill needs some work done still, and with the way the power play has been lately it seems that Andrew Burnette may be working for the team in a different capacity after this season is over.

Tonight's goals were scored by Zach Parise and Jared Spurgeon. Dallas won tonight, so the Wild maintain their 5pt lead over Dallas, and extend their lead over Phoenix to 3pts. We're on the final countdown for the season with just 7 games left. Wild play the Kings next on Monday night.

Please leave your Wild poems/limericks/song lyrics in the comment section.
