Questions to Answer

  1. This is a much different Calgary team than we saw in January. Can the Wild get two wins in a row at the Saddledome, or did the change do them some good?
  2. How will the rest affect the non-Olympians?
  3. Will Martin Havlat, Marek Zidlicky, Mikko Koivu, Niklas Backstrom and Antti Miettinen look after their Olympic run?
  4. Can the Wild make Miikka Kiprusoff look as bad as the USA did?
  5. How will Chuck Kobasew look in his first game back?
