The Wild defeated post-season nemesis Chicago last night, but it was not pretty. By hook or by crook, I suppose, but the Wild will have a lot of nervous fans if they play like that night in and night out.

In the meantime, enjoy one of the greatest rock bands of all time, with one of the best lead singers in history, Terry Kath.
