Wilderness Walk: We need a boost (game day) edition

New, comments

The Wild need a boost. WE need a boost. After a three game home stand where the Wild failed to look even moderately like an actual NHL team. We lost Bowie, we lost Rickman, the league is treating it's players like trash (in new and different ways from normal.

it's been a bad stretch. Worse, the Wild play again tonight, and if they looked that lethargic last night, I'm dreading to see what they look like tonight.

We need a boost. So, enjoy this brilliant live performance from perhaps the greatest band ever to grace the planet.

Gosh it's almost like the Wild haven't been playing well and aren't getting PPs because of it. Not that they would have capitalized on them anyways.
