Questions to Answer

  1. Kim Johnsson is absolutely on fire. He leads all defensemen in goals. Can he stay on this pace?
    Any chance Eric Belanger has a repeat performance against his first team?
    Will Drew Doughty be flying high after his selection to Team Canada?
    With Petr Sykora back in the lineup (likely with minimal ice time), can he make the most of those moments and build on the positivity surrounding the franchise?
    Will tonight be the night the Wild set a new franchise record for wins in a month?
