Wilderness Walk 9-28-2013: Inching Closer to the Regular Season Edition

Next Thursday just can't come soon enough now...

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Hello, Wilderness!

Last night, the Wild were singing the blues as they lost a tough one to the Blues last night 4-1. It was such an unbelievable comeback for them, as they scored all those goals in the 3rd period. But hey, at least we beat them 3-1 a few days ago when they came to the X.

With that, the preseason is now over for the Wild. They managed to finish with a 4-2 record for the preseason, and the start to their season is only days away now as they open up at home this coming Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings.

In the meantime, let's take a walk.
