The Minnesota Wild travel to Calgary tonight to take on the Flames. It should be another scrappy game between the two division rivals. The Flames thumped the Wild the last time they played at the Saddledome (Wild lost 5-3 on 10/24), but the Wild returned the thump on their home ice 11/3 winning 4-1.
The Wild will skate sans Demitra, Gaborik, Wes Walz or Stephane Veilleux, but it should be a good game against the flaming C. I will have to stay up late to see how it ends. The Flames are on a five game losing streak, but for whatever reason the Saddledome is not friendly to the Minnesota Wild and Niklas Backstrom. Let's go Wild!
