Good morning, Wilderness! Hopefully everyone survived the first Tsnownami of the season (and last?).
The Wild are back in action tonight against the always
exciting present New Jersey Devils. If you're not sure what I mean, take a look at this tweet of a shot-chart last night:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>The Devils need a defibrillator <a href="http://t.co/QVrApC2zCT">pic.twitter.com/QVrApC2zCT</a></p>— Bruins Stats (@bruins_stats) <a href="https://twitter.com/bruins_stats/status/531971113782616064">November 11, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
In an effort to break the Wild's slump, I offer you not the #RallyRuckus, but rather a number of #RallyRuckus-es... enjoy!
