Jan Hejda - David Savard
With zero wins in the post season, and a late flight to Finland, the Wild are desperate for a win. However, they lost just two days ago to a Columbus team that was no where near as talented as the one slated to skate tonight, and the
excuse reason given for that loss was the loss of Marek Zidlicky early in the game. Guess what? He won't play at all tonight, so now what? It is time for the Wild to show something, and this is their last chance before they start to count.
1. After giving up two goals to the C Blue Jackets, can the Wild's team defense shut down the like of Rick Nash?
2. Backstrom's play was one of the strong points for two periods in the last match. Does that continue, and can he put it together for the full 60 minutes?
3. Kobasew on the Twilight line tonight. Can he be more effective there than Clutterbuck was?
4. Still no Clayton Stoner. Has Justin Falk stolen the sixth spot, and how will Falk look this evening?
5.Final chance for the rookies to make an impression. How will Falk, Scandella, and Bagnall handle the pressure?
