Wilderness Walk: WCQF Game 5 Edition

New, comments

It's here folks. Game 5 plays out tonight.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning Wilderness! Where to begin, where to begin. AH! So the Wild begin their best-of-three playoff series against the St. Louis Blues tonight. I tell ya what, the start of a playoff series like we're seeing tonight is always a huge deal. No doubt the ceremony in St. Louis tonight will be outer worldly.

The drama plays out tonight. All we have to do is wait, and of course The Waiting is the hardest part.
