Wilderness Walk: Dubnyk Dazzles, Evander Kane says things, and a women's Winter Classic?

Good morning, Wilderness! The Wild got a big win that looked more like the Wild we expect to see.

Before last night's game, a heavy metal icon and legend, one Lemmy Kilmister, passed away at age 70 after a battle with cancer. The front man for Motorhead usually rocked a Rickenbacker and cranked it to 15 on the volume knob. He positioned the microphone so that he had to look up and extend his neck to unleash the crunchy, raspy vocals his fans have come to love. Lemmy was a heavy metal icon since the '70's, and lived the rock 'n' roll life to the fullest, yet inspring so many great bands throughout his life. If you want to sum up Motorhead, just listened to the speed metal favorite "Ace Of Spades." While a great song, true die hard fans will point to other great songs like, "Killed by Death," "Overkill" and so on, but Spades just perfectly defines the kind of band Motorhead was with Lemmy at the front. The music world lost a true icon and cancer indeed proves that it sucks again.

Anyways, for the music selection we chose the classic Motorhead song, "Bomber." Cause Charlie Coyle "shoots to kill."

Yeo is right, it wasn't a good homestand, but it wasn't terrible either. The Wild are 14-5-1 at home and are tied for the 3rd best home record in the league.

If the media isn't going to cover it with the kind of fervor that it deserves, why hold it at all?
