A new season begins! A clean slate.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Every NHL team (besides the Oilers) starts a new season with the same goal, the goal of hoisting the Cup at the end of the year. Tonight starts that epic quest.

Our Wild unfortunately don't play until tomorrow night (I'm not sure I can wait much longer!!). But luckily our matchup is a doozy. We open the season against the very team we eliminated from the playoffs last year, the dreaded Colorado Avalanche. I still hate those Colorado Shmucks!!

My expectaion for tomorrows game against the Avs goes something like this. watch.0.html

Anyone else getting the feeling(Spidey Sense)that we will be playing the Avs in our eventual outdoor game?!?

Tomorrow is going to be awesome.

Does anyone else miss Heater yet? Or is it just me.
