wilderness walk: caps lock is broken - game day edition

something is not quite right here. the caps lock has been broken, i don't understand what is going on.

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

good morning wilderness. something is certainly not quite right around these parts today. you see, after starting out with the caps locked in effect, and everything was looking great in the world of caps lock, it all went horribly sour for the caps lock, and it just doesn't work. i want to say this has happened 5 previous times, where the caps lock has ceased to function, and just 1 of those times was it ever a serious problem. that serious problem has cropped it's head up again. perhaps a certain piece, or a key even is missing, but even with as important as that key is, it doesn't take away from something that just doesn't happen.

all that being said, the washington capitals also failed to lock last night at the verizon center where they have only lost to the wild once before, and the caps even scored first. i mean, they never lose when they score first, except of course for those other 5 times, once in regulation. wow, what an odd and weird coincidence.

so your wild are back at it again tonight for the 2nd half of a back-to-back where they traveled down the coast to take on the carolina hurricanes. last time these two faced off it was at the xcel energy center in st. paul on valentines day of all days. the wild won that game 6 - 3 and we saw the great thomas vanek pocket 2 goals and an assist as well. the hurricanes are kicking off a 5-game home stand tonight coming off a 5 - 2 loss at the hands of the chicago blackhawks on monday.
