Wilderness Walk: Nino and Zuckerman to the Rescue!

New, comments
Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The real question: will we finally see #Nino #Freed?

Last night was a good win for the boys; they did exactly what you're supposed to do to a bad team. The bad part is that the Wild didn't capitalize on a number of Power Play chances- to the surprise of... someone, I'm sure.

With that, enjoy this tune from a favorite of mine, and have a lovely day:
