Wilderness Walk: Game Day Edition

New, comments
Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

The Wild have their chance to start a new streak tonight against the New Jersey Devils, sans Jagr. Be sure to head to In Lou We Trust for all your Devils' needs.

Short walk today- I said most of what I had to say yesterday. I just hope the Wild don't feel like they need to come out and make some kind of a physical statement. Get the puck, take it to the net, shoot, and get to the rebounds. Because against the Dev's, you're not going to have a million shots.

Today's musical selection takes us back to the days of sweaty unitards and hairy dudes with high voices. I'm talkin' the 80's.
