Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

The Wild watched as Mike Modano was honored last night in Dallas, having his number raised to the rafters, then later watched as the Stars walked away with a 4-3 victory over the Wild.

Damn you Keith Ballard!

No time to dwell folks! We're back at it tonight as the Minnesota Wild hope to get back to their winning ways against a powerhouse team in the St. Louis Blues at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Game starts at 7 pm (or 6 pm if you forgot to spring ahead your clock).

Enjoy that extra hour of sun later in the day folks! I know I'll enjoy it being dark again when I go to work on Monday.
