Good late morning as I fight through a network adapter that believes it gets union breaks.
The Wild continue to impress, and continue to win. That boring, passive forecheck last night was ridiculous in creating turned over pucks behind or near the goal line. How about that Gopher to Badger connection? That's big time, right there.
Make sure you have read Chris' take on Minnesota High School Hockey that went up earlier this morning. We'll have some power rankings at some point, too. That is... as long as my computer stays functional for that long. I swear it just doesn't enjoy being on while the sun is out.
Oh well. Enjoy your day, folks.

Kings after deadline: Terry Murray talks about 'dangerous play' - latimes.com - From Kings coach Terry Murray on the Brodziak penalty: ""I was worried about that one," he said. "That's a very dangerous play. You get cross-checked into the boards like that, I've seen too many players blow their knees, break their legs in those situations. I was very concerned about that one."
Apparently, Terry was watching a different game than everyone else.
