Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

Another game day is upon us, and the question of the day is, "Can the Wild win a 3rd game in a row?"

This stretch is a little easier than the Wild went through recently. Rattle off a few more wins and maybe all of this "tanking" talk will go in the tank. Funny how that works out huh?

Today's musical selection is a good one, so pay attention. Many of us when we look back at the last few weeks of hockey in Minnesota, would like to Edit the Sad Parts.
