First off, the good news: Marco Scandella is skating in practice this AM (from Russo & Wild Twitter accounts).
Now, your daily reminder to go get a check up. This is what Movember is all about, so you'll have to put up with it for 11 more days. That's just the way it is. Also just the way it is? If you don't go get a yearly check up, you're going to die early. I can hear you all out there right now. "Whoa Reynolds, ease up on the death and destruction." I'll pass. A win for the Wild and a loss for the Hawks puts your favorite squad in first place in the West. Don't going dying now.
Go get a check up. Donate to the Hockey Wilderness team. Pay attention.
