A couple goalies.

Game three, home game number one. Tonight is the night for Wild fans to get to see the top line in action. How much chemistry and goal scoring there will be is another question entirely, but you can at least see them.The game is being broadcast on, as will each remaining home game. Thank the hockey gods.

This should be a fun game, getting to see at least the first and third lines in action, see how the top offensive threat and the top defensive threats work together. It will also be good to see the top pairing on defense out in game action.

The Blue Jackets will trot out their top line for the first time as well. Nathan can get his Rick Nash fix, and everyone can see if Jeff Carter has the ability to play hockey. I've heard of him... I think he can play...

Enjoy the game.

Five Questions:

  1. How does the Two Sharks and a Finn line look?
  2. Second showing of the Blacksmith Line. Do they continue to pound away?
  3. First look at ZZ Top. Can we get lost in the beard?
  4. Could be a first look at Darcy Kuemper. If so, how does he look?
  5. Wild going with the "Every Kris Begins With K" lineup tonight. Will it work?
