Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

Calling all fans of Chowdah - welcome to the home of all things Chowdah - the clams, the soup, and Charlie Coyle.

Welcome to Boston, where the Wild haven't been for a Long Time, and won't be there for a Long Time again.  Here in Boston, people are taught how to pronounce important words:

Now that that's settled, let's focus on hockey.  The now fourth-place (with games in hand) Wild enter Boston looking to capitalize on an opponent whose peers in the standings so far this season are Buffalo, Toronto and Philadelphia.  Though the Bruin's 17 points are nothing to write home about, their not being in last place might be following the tire fire that was their offseason.  The team has struggled predictably as they have retooled their roster, and this should be a game that the Wild can get their offense rolling, as the home team has allowed a hair over 3 goals against per game on the season.  Keep your eyes on Charlie Coyle, who loves to play in front of his family, friends and hometown fans.

We celebrate today's game with a song that couldn't be any more Boston, and describes the relationship between the Wild and Bruins accurately.
