I heard through the grapevine that the Wild would release their schedule today and the grapevine was partially correct. The Minnesota Wild announced their season opener game today. DRUMROLL, PLEASE . . . The Minnesota Wild season will officially start on Saturday October 11th at the Xcel Energy Center vs. the Boston Bruins.
The complete Wild Schedule is slated to be released Thursday by the NHL - only one day later than what the grapevine reported...that's not bad.
If you remember last years season opener, it was on Wednesday October 10th vs. the Edmonton Oilers and the Wild beat the Oilers 2-0. The Wild have a history of winning the opener. I am going to try and get some tickets to the game and head out to the X for the opener this year, but I am sure it won't be cheap! The ticket brokers have to love this - an opener on a Saturday night vs. an East coat rival like Boston. It's golden.
