It it finally that time again. Yup, it's time once again for a Wild game day.
The Wild are coming off what shouldn't have been a loss to the Washington Capitals 2 days ago.
Tonight, the Wild conclude their short east coast road trip with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Game time tonight is also 7/6 central just like Thursday's game.
