Good morning Wilderness! Its GAME DAY!!!! And seeing how as I'm your trail guide on game day, these nights have a tendency to not end well. Lets try to break that ugly habit tonight, shall we?
Your Minnesota Wild have made the trip to the great white north to take on the hated Calgary Flames. Hated may be a strong word, but I'm sticking with it, so there :P
I don't have much for you today besides what you came here for in the first place, the links! Stay tuned to Hockey Wilderness today folks, we do have some special features coming out today starting around 9:30 am and going on throughout the day. They will also tie into articles being done all over SB Nation with a common theme. I wont divulge too much here (its called a tease people!), I just wanted to let you know what we have coming up for you today across SB Nation.
Now, onto the links....
