Questions to Answer

  1. San Jose's top line of Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton and Dany Heatley is fantastic. Can the Wild defensive pairing (likely Greg Zanon and Marek Zidlicky) keep them in check?
  2. Josh Harding has looked great in three straight, but that hip is still bothering him. How is he going to fair?
  3. Can the Wild power play find some success?
  4. It took until Thursday night to get the first Minnesota road victory in January. Can tonight be the second?
  5. The Sharks had won five straight before Thursday's shootout loss to the Blackhawks, will they come out firing, looking to get back on their winning ways?
