Wilderness Walk for 4-1-2011

Happy April Fools Day, folks. Or, as it is known on Twitter: The day you better be checking every story before retweeting it. By the end of the day, we are likely to have a story or two of someone getting burned somewhere along the line. When it happens, let's hope it is not you, or we may make fun of you.

Just sayin.

How about that big win last night, eh? Winning under pressure, it's what all the good teams do. The clutch performances, the leadership to step up and beat a hot Oilers squad... amazing how they can do that after being so run down. Or, you know, they beat a really crappy hockey team. One of the two. I'll let you decide.

How about a Facebook Question of the Day? That might help. Check it out and report back to the rest of these naysayers.

Current Wild Position

11th place, 80 points, 8 points behind eighth place Chicago Blackhawks
Two points up on with St. Louis Blues & Columbus Blue Jackets for 13th

Tragic Number

3 - Wild loss coupled with Chicago win would officially eliminate the Wild.

A huge thank you to Brian at Canes Country for tracking magic & tragic numbers for the SBNation hockey group. Amazing amount of work. Thank you!
