Good morning, Wilderness. I've returned from that dark armpit of America known as Michigan, with glad tidings. Though none of you probably care, Landon Donovan, recently maligned and left off the 2014 USA World Cup team, broke the MLS all-time scoring record last night with 135 career goals. Read about it here.
However, we continue to THE WALK:
Pro Hockey Talk: Columnist Believes Iginla Won't Return to Boston- It's a VERY VERY slow news day, so I'll stretch this to Wild News by saying: If Iggy's available, maybe we pick him up?
Tending the Fields:
Sports Illustrated: Edmonton Oil Kings Defeat Guelph Storm for Memorial Cup- The Wild's Zach Mitchell had a goal.
In the Hunt:
The Score: Martin St. Louis Scores OT Winner, Rangers Lead Series 3-1- Do-or-Die time for the Canadian Canadiens (and all the other ones too).
Pro Hockey Talk: Kane Thinks He Can Turn Things Around By Demanding the Puck- Goals? Where we're going, we don't need.... goals...
The Score: Rangers' Stepan Will Not Play Game 4, No Timetable for Return- Geez, that hit must have warranted a hefty suspension... or maybe only two game?
Minnesota Hockey Magazine: Minnesota Athletes Start Foundation- Minnesotans have started a program to help people through the game of Hockey. Neat.
In the Box (Boo-Hiss!):
Puck Daddy: Russia, Sweden Head Coaches Suspended at Worlds Due To Throa-Slash Gesture- Apparently it's sign language for 'sore throat'?
Off the Trail:
The Score: Jaromir Jagr Announces International Hockey Retirement- Dude has played a lot of games...
Sports Illustrated: Ovechkin, Malkin Lead Russia to Gold at World Championships- Unfortunately, Malkin also tried to behead Erik Haula like he was Eddard Stark....
