Wilderness, we are deep in the doldrums. There's little news, and what news there is isn't good (see: shootout).
The good news: Minnesota United has won their second game in a row, are sitting in good position to set themselves up for the end of the season, and have just generally played really well. This change has been led by off-season signing Kalif Alhassan and the resurgence of last season's leading scorer Christian Ramirez.
OK, back to hockey. After one more detour: enjoy the wonderful work of Mr. Leonard Bernstein.
