Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

The Wild take on the Canucks tonight, at the X. It's another opportunity to extend the winning streak, to gain some ground on the Nucks, and to watch some hockey.

We recorded a new podcast last night, with the help of Adam Stafki (@NorthernRinkRat) and that should go up tomorrow... so be ready!

Be sure to check out Nucks Misconduct for all your Canucks needs, and maybe check out this piece on some possible trades they're looking at.

Our musical stylings today are one of the better bands ever to play, the Buddy Rich Big Band, with the Joe Zawinul hit "Birdland".
