Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Wild step on the throat of an opponent they should be able to beat handily?
    The Ducks are well rested coming off two losses while the Wild are on the second night of a back to back. Will that difference in rest prove to be a factor?
    Bobby Ryan is on fire and always seems to play well against the Wild. Can he be neutralized?
    The Wild are finding scoring and clutch play from a seemingly different guy each night during December. Who will be that guy tonight?
    Can the Wild make this December the best month in franchise history by beating the Ducks at the Ponda?
