5 Questions:

1. Despite the Wild being outshot by the Blackhawks on Saturday, they managed to pull through and come out with the win.  Can they keep this momentum going tonight?

2. Our PK units have been doing an exceptional job lately.  Can they keep this up tonight?

3. Dany Heatley finally scored his first goal last week (albeit an empty-netter), and is slowly starting to improve.  Can he finally score a goal that isn't an empty-netter so he can get that monkey off his back?

4. Niklas Backstrom did a tremendous job in net against the Hawks on Saturday.  Can he keep it going?

5. The Wild scored a whopping 5 goals against the Hawks on Saturday.  Can they do it again tonight?
