You had to see that coming... the Wild aren't playing very well, their being out-shot most nights, and quite frankly their passing has been really bad. The Wild will look to recuperate against the Flames on Wednesday, in a very important game against a team that they're chasing.
A new podcast should drop today, but in the meantime, please enjoy one of my favorite cheesy, over-the-top music videos. The music isn't great, the singing is sub-par, but the sheer schtick of it all really pulls the room together.

Sloppy passing did the Wild in. Some would say "turnovers," but honestly 90% of those were bad passes.
