We're going to assume the same lineup tonight. Enjoy the game.

Five Questions:

  1. Can the dominant play continue?
  2. Do the Wild play into a revenge game or play their own style?
  3. Who is the hero tonight, if one is to be had?
  4. The Wild need this to keep pace with the Nucks. Is there a sense of urgency?
  5. How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
