Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

New, comments
Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Today is a great day. Not because it's a Saturday. Not because today is the start of an upward trend in weather. Today is a good day because its game day for the Minnesota Wild and just not any old game--but a game against our hated rivals the Colorado Avalanche!

Tonight not only do we put our 3-0-0 record on the line against the Avalanche we also put our Not-Giving-Up-A-Goal-To-These-Buttclowns-During-The-2014/2015-Season on the line!!!!!

Last night was a relatively good night for those that are already looking at the standings. The Kings lost. The Flames lost. The Blackhawks lost and the Avalanche took Dallas too a shoutout last night!.

The Avalanche is coming off a back-to-back in which yesterday they played in Dallas against the Stars so I'm hoping they have dead leg. And gout. And scurvy.
