Game day. Are there two greater words in the English language? Tonight, the Wild get the Broad Street Bullies, and it should be a very physical game. The Flyers are also one of the best teams in the league, so this will be another big challenge for the Wild.
As abismal as the Rangers game was, they need to forget about it. Hopefully they don't take the second period off against this Flyers squad, because they will make the Wild pay for it.
As for the Walk today, you get some Sully links, some insight on Kassian and Falk moves, and an example of the big time hockey media being just a bit behind on a story. Make sure you have some fun today. There is the Facebook Question of the Day, the Create-a-Caption Contest, and you are running out of time to make your Movember donation.
Enjoy your day. More snow predicted here in Minnesota, and Ms. Conduct says "real feel" of 89 in Houston. I think we got the better of that deal.

The Hockey News: Ken Campbell's blog: THN.com Blog: Ownership concern in Minnesota and a classy Pat Burns ceremony in Montreal - Hockey Wilderness reader (and proud author of the First Round Bust blog) Gopher State found this link yesterday. It details out a bit about the Wild's minority owner being in a bit of trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission. For our friends in Canada, this is a part of the government that oversees stocks and other investments. Basically, it is a group that watches rich people to make sure they aren't cheating the system.
Evening Reading: SEC Probing Philip Falcone; China Wants In on GM IPO - Deal Journal - WSJ - The only issue with the link above is it took them 10 days (at least) to catch up with the news. The Wall Street Journal had the story on the 12th. It wasn't reported here mainly because of what I wrote above. Rich people behaving badly. Eh.
phil falcone sec - Google Search - Just to wrap this up, here is a Google search showing the many, many sites that had the story before THN.
