NOTES:

  • Minnesota was within one point of the lead in the Northwest Division at the end of November, but a 3-9-1 slide this month has dropped it into last place.
  • The Wild has been outscored 23-11 going 0-6-2 in the last 8 vs. San Jose. In those 8, Evgeni Nabokov posted a 1.35 gaa.
  • The Sharks have just one regulation loss in their last 20 games, going 15-1-4 since a 4-2 defeat at Phoenix on Nov. 9.
  • Owen Nolan, who is definitely not ready to play, asked Jacques to play.

Questions to Answer

  1. Is Russo right? Should they just tank the rest of the season?
    Will the boo birds return?
    Why are they playing at 5:00?
    Will the Wild amass more than 20 shots?
    Do Lemaire and Risebrough care?
