Questions to Answer
  1. Did they get their heads on straight after the crapfest against Ottawa?
  2. Does Bouchard stay hot, or did the time off cool him off?
  3. Is this a chance to get back in the Northwest division race, or will this push them back further?
  4. Will Mikka Kiprusoff continue to own the Wild?
  5. Does this mark the beginning of the end?
