Wilderness Walk: Wild Hockey's Back! Edition

After a 2 week break that seemed like much longer than that, our beloved Wild finally take the ice again.

Derek Leung

Hello, Wilderness!

In case anyone is wondering why I'm doing the Walk today instead of Tony, it's because something came up for him at the last minute that prevented him from doing it.

Anywho, let's get down to business.

Tonight, your Minnesota Wild take the ice again for this final 2-month stretch and push to the playoffs. Their first game back tonight is against the Edmonton Oilers, who as we all know is among one of the worst teams in the NHL.

The last time these 2 teams met, it was at home at the X, and it ended in a 4-1 victory for the Wild.

Since the Oilers and Wild aren't in the same divisions anymore (the Wild being in the Central, and the Oilers in the Pacific), there will be only one more time that these 2 teams meet after tonight.

Game time tonight is at 8:30, and can be seen on FSN, as well as heard on 100.3 KFAN and

Enjoy the game tonight!

Until then, let's take a walk...
