Notes

  • Both teams are on the outside looking in. 11th and 10th in the playoff race.
  • Corey Perry has three goals against the Wild this season, and five goals in his last six games against them.
  • John Scott was recalled from Houston due to Brent Burns' illness. It will be a gametime decision between Scott and Foster

Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Wild show some kind of consistency?
  2. What the hell happened to Niklas Backstrom?
  3. Can the Wild stop Corey Perry?
  4. Who do we hate now that Moen, Pahlsson, Kunitz, Bertuzzi and May are no longer Ducks? Is it Pronger and only Pronger?
  5. Is the window closed for the Ducks? Is it time for Pronger, Selanne and the Nidermayers to move on?
