Five Questions:

  1. What doe s the absence of Jason Zucker do to the Wild?
  2. Can PMB make his presence felt?
  3. The loss of Chay Genoway will be huge tonight. What impact will it have on the Wild in this game?
  4. No Brett "The Hitman" Clark, huh? Can the rest of the guys get over the disappointment?
  5. Can the Wild avoid playing down to their competition?
