GDT: Minnesota Wild vs. Chicago Whatsits

New, comments

The Wild welcome their postseason nemeses the Chicago... uh... I honestly can't remember their name. I tried to find it in the Walk this morning, but it wasn't there either (apparently others here in the wilderness are stuggling too). So... the Wild welcome that team from Chicago. Whatever they are called.

Is it too early to claim a game has playoff implications? Perhaps, but if there was one that did, this might be it. The Chicagoans have eliminated the Wild from the playoffs since Mike Yeo and company reminded us of what playoffs were. This is our first chance to see the new squad from Illinois, and tonight could give us a preview of the postseason hurdle we will likely face again.

Then again, Minnesota played rather well against Chicago last regular season, only to be broomed in the second round.
