The Wild are being quiet if Mikko Koivu returns today or not. Our bet is yes, but that has not been told to us just yet. We will update when we know.
As for the game, The Dive for Top Five is on the line here. The Wild currently own the fifth pick. As loss today, and an OT game between the Canadiens and Islanders, and the Wild would be in the third overall position. Third. The Wild have been this high since December.
Wait. That's not funny.
The game promises to be everything and nothing all at the same time. Downtown St. Paul is going to be a zoo with the parade and WCHA Final Five finals later today. If you're going, arrive early, and have a plan.
Enjoy the game.
- Can the Dive for Top Five end in top three by the end of the day?
- Does Koivu return?
- Can the Wild put up a good fight, and lose valiantly?
- What does downtown St. Paul look like on St. Patrick's day on a Saturday?
- If we say Devin Setoguchi hasn't played well, will he play well?
