Burned_equipment_mediumThe truck carrying the Minnesota Wild's equipment caught fire following today's practice at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa. Almost everything was lost, and the Wild's equipment and training team is scrambling to take an inventory and get back to Minneapolis.

It'll be interesting to see what the actual cause of the fire was (Flame war with A2Y gone bad?) and what ramifications it will have on tomorrow's game with the Senators. New skates, new pads, new sticks. Chances are there will be a lot of uncomfortable players.

This is taking "red-hot" to an entirely new level.Boogaard_on_fire_medium

We'll keep you up to date as new information surfaces.
