Hello, and welcome to the last walk I will ever write as an unmarried person!

In all seriousness, what a fun game? The Wild got outplayed for half the game by a pretty terribad team (albeit, score effects).

But- GOOD NEWS- seems like MLS is pretty certainly coming to Minnesota. So, if you like hockey on grass with a ball and more guys with lower scores... that's happening.

In any case, tonight the Wild take on the Islanders, so here's hoping they can pull out another big win. Head over to Lighthouse Hockey for all your Isles' needs.
