Yes, I realize this isn't going up at its usual time. I would like to apologize for that as I got caught up in some other things last night like watching a movie and stuff. Because of that I accidentally completely forgot about it and then realized later last night. Ouch.
Nevertheless, it still has to be done.
Anywho, tonight, your Minnesota Wild conclude this 4-game road trip in Calgary to take on the Flames at the Saddledome.
On Thursday, the Wild lost to the Avalanche in a tough battle that ended in a score of 5-4. Hopefully the Wild could end this extended road trip on a good note and redeem themselves with a win tonight.
Game time tonight is another late one (UGH), with a start time of 9 PM.
Enjoy the game tonight, Wilderness!
Until then, let's take a walk and see what's going on around the Wilderness.
