So, that happened sports fans. Your Minnesota Wild lost to the St. Louis Blues in game 4 by the score of 153 - 1 and were out-shot by somewhere close to infinity for most of the game. It's the kind of game you want to wipe clear from your memory banks about as quickly as possible. At least we're not the Winnipeg Jets huh? 4 game sweep and their postseason is over almost before it started.
It was the weirdest thing about last nights game. Your normally fleet-a-foot Wild squad looked like they were skating around with an 18-wheeler strapped to their backs. That's not really a fair assessment I suppose. If there truly were 18 wheeler's out there, you'd think they would have gotten in the way of a puck or two, and that clearly did not happen. Yet, it certainly did look like the team of 18,000 Dany Heatley's.
This teams needs to sit down, and hit the reset switch. Here to help them do that today, your musical selection, MUTEMATH
