Questions to Answer

  1. Does Backstrom's signing put some life into this squad?
    Will the number of shots against Edmonton resurface again tonight?
    Will the old men last the entire game?
    Will Burrows get Clutterbucked?
    Does tonight's game get the Wild back in the playoff hunt, or push them closer to selling time?
