5 Questions

1. Mikko Koivu has 21 pts in 27 games against the Blues in his career. Can he get a few more points against them tonight?

2. The Wild are 22-15-9 overall against the Blues, and 14-5-4 at the X. Can they add one more to the Win column tonight?

3. Ryan Suter has been getting national attention as a possible Norris candidate. Can he show the Wild fans that there is light at the end of the tunnel?

4. Backstrom typically hasn't faired well against the Blues (6-7-1). How does he look like tonight?

5. The loss against the Hawks left the locker room sounding defeated and depressed. Win or lose tonight, are there any fireworks coming out of it tonight?
