NOTES:

  • Cal Clutterbuck will be miked for the game.
    Detroit is 10-1-2 with Minnesota in their last 13 games.
  • From Russo: "Jacques Lemaire talked at length today again about how proud he was that the team finally listened to the coaches and played the counterattack style he’s been begging for."

Questions to Answer

  1. Will the Wild play the kind of counter-attacking game they did against Calgary?
    Will the NBC coverage slant so heavily toward the Red Wings that we're all nauseous?
    Will Marian Gaborik show off on the national stage?
    With Detroit virtually cemented into the #2 slot, will they relax and give the Wild an easier game?
    Is today the day the season comes to an end?
