Notes

  • Welcome to Wes Walz Day!
  • The Wild lead the all-time series 6-2-0 with a tie.
  • Despite its recent struggles, Minnesota has still allowed a Western Conference-low 43 goals.

Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Wild bounce back from a weak finish against Dallas?
    Any chance they can actually keep a lead and play out the entire 60 minutes?
    How long will Gillies stay in the dog house?
    Burns return to the blue line? Please?
    Does the crowd have a turkey hangover? I know I do!
