Wilderness Walk: Gameday Edition

Why so serious? - Jonathan Daniel

Game 2. Chicago. LETSSSSSSSSSS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Yeah, the whole Rocky theme didn't exactly work out (JUST LIKE IN ROCKY 1) for us, so fuck that.

Your Minnesota Wild have a game tonight. Against the Chicago Blackhawks. Oofff, did I mention it's game 2 and we're already down 1-0 in the series? Yeah, no one said it would be easy.

Justin Fontaine will be making his return to the line up (WHY WAS HE TAKEN OUT?) and hopefully he'll join the a line with Nino and Haula, for that line absolutely tore the Avs apart on the forecheck. Not that the Hawks aren't a 1000x's better on the transition than the #AvNots, but it couldn't hurt.

Also, Bryzgalov.

And even worse, Brodin. Step it up, kid.
