Wilderness Walk: Game Day 4 Edition

It is on like Donkey Kong!

Hannah Foslien

The Wild are on a 1-game roll... so don't stop them now!

This game needs little buildup. So let's just walk.

Wild News

Star Tribune: Will Wild take Next Step or Wait?- We've been here before. Time to take a step forward.
Star Tribune: Wild Brace for Faster Pace from Speedy Hawks- Game 3 saw a conservative Blackhawks team. The Wild cannot expect the same after the Hawks' poor offensive output with that strategy.
Pioneer Press: With Everything to Lose, Wild found a way to Win- The Wild have played well with their backs to the wall this season. Will that continue tonight?
Pioneer Press: Matt Cooke is Ready to Play and not Cheer- Cookie Monster comes back tonight. Hopefully he's presence is (cleanly and legally) felt.

Puck Daddy: Matt Cooke Ready to Return- See above.

Enemy News

Chicago Tribune: Shaw still Out, Leddy In for Game 4- Hopefully Leddy skates like his skates are full of lead.
Puck Daddy: Hjalmarsson cannot speak, but will play- Does that mean he'll be "quiet" on the ice? (har har)

Off the Trail

Star Tribune: NHL has "Slap Shot" on Thin Ice- The Jack Carlson bioflick is skating on thin ice due to the very physical nature of his play.
Star Tribune: Fraser's Goal lifts Bruins- The series is tied at 2.
Star Tribune: Selanne, Perry get big goals, Ducks win over Kings- The series is at 2-1.

On the Pitch

The Relegated: Know your Foe: New York Cosmos- We're playing them soon. Watch party on Monday at Brit's pub.
