Well, the Wild blew it again. Another sad day here in the Wilderness. The Ducks managed to outscore them 3-1, in a game that was mostly dominated by them. Despite the loss, a few good things that managed to come out of this game were Scandella's first goal of the season, and some good saves from Bäckström (until the Ducks managed to score on him). Let's hope the Wild can get this out of their system so we can get back on the winning path and send the Coyotes howling home when we play them down in the desert on Monday. Now, let's take a Walk:
