Good morning, Wilderness! What a great day today is! Despite the fact that we got some more snow again (hurry up spring!) I'm proud to say that it's another Wild game day! This afternoon (yes, you heard me right), your Minnesota Wild take on the Colorado Avalanche yet again, but this time, in Denver. This is the first of 2 day games this season, the other one being back at home against San Jose. By the time you see this, game time is only a matter of hours away. Enjoy the earlier game today, Wilderness! Now, let's take a Walk:
Minnesota Wild Look To Take Another From Colorado Avalanche - Gone Puck Wild - Here's a preview for today's game. Can the Wild win 2 games in a row against Colorado? We'll just have to see.
NHL.com - Wild's Zucker skates, questionable to return to lineup - At the Rink blog - Zucker really got hit hard from Perry's hit during our game against the Ducks on Tuesday. Even though he had to sit out of our game against Colorado on Thursday, we have some good news. He did join the rest of the team for their morning skate yesterday, and he will be travelling with the rest of the team down to Denver.
Minnesota Wild: Mikko Koivu Beginning to Put Puck In Net - Rant Sports - Koivu sure is starting to heat up. He got his 5th and 6th goals during our game on Thursday. Along with the scoring Parise and some of our other top players are doing, I think this is what the Wild needs to stay successful for the last half of this shortened season.
Minnesota Wild: Torrey Mitchell, fourth-line mates stepping up - TwinCities.com - Our fourth line has been doing impressive lately. I think Mitchell, along with our some of our other fourth line players, has been keeping us in the game.
