Wilderness Walk: New outlook, same game

New, comments
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Wild face yet another team tonight, but so much has changed. The Widl have scored again... the Wild have scored in three different ways: breakaways, power plays, and a shorthanded odd-man rush(!). Tonight, the Wild face the Sharks, in California. Will we see the new, improved Wild? Or is it a return to the sad, pathetic Wild of the past few weeks? We'll find out.

Before we walk, enjoy this performance from the No BS! Brass Band
