I won't keep you too long today, Wilderness. Spend some Thanksgiving time with your loved ones and such and such.
Also, the Wild stuff is pretty depressing right now.
There's a game tomorrow. See you then.
Without Parise, Granlund, Wild falls 3-1 to Phoenix at the X | Star Tribune- Boooooooo.
Another slow start for the Wild and another head injury to Mikael Granlund | Russo's Rants | StarTribune.com- We'd seen the dreaded "upper-body injury" thrown around with Granlund in the last few days. It's unknown whether Granlund had any concussion-related issues before tonight, but it seems if he didn't have any then, he has some now. A shame, as he's really improved this season.
Minnesota Wild: Sluggish loss brings out the boo birds - TwinCities.com- More booooos.
Vrbata strikes twice as the Wild loses 3-1 in bland home effort- It's weird how that home dominance disappears when Parise leaves.
Quickly recovering Parise skates in practice, but sits out game | Star Tribune- On the good news front, it looked for a bit that Parise was going to play tonight. So there's that at least. I'd rather have Parise than Granlund, so if we have to make that deal, you gotta do it.
