Wilderness Walk: Day Off Edition

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Wild are getting today off before they have a home game against the Colorado Thugs. They will actually be eating dinner IN COLORADO while the Aves take on the Blue Jackets in Columbus. Ha, ha, suckers.

A lot of the following stories continue to center around the fantastic play of Dubnyk since he decided to wear the Iron Range Red and Forest Green. I've also included a few Colorado Avalanche links to get us pumped up for tomorrow's game. Anybody plan on going? I'm thinking about it if I can find a pair or tickets that won't break the bank!

On to the Walk...

The Minnesota Wild's Goaltender Crisis
The same topic has been on a lot of our minds lately. Do you continue to run the hot hand and risk also running him into the ground or do you risk putting in two goalies that have not performed at an NHL level this season. I'd hate to be Mike Yeo when it comes to trying to figure out the best answer.

Dubnyk probably saved Mike Yeo's coaching job with the Wild but I'm sure we could EASILY find other things to blame Yeo about.
