Your Minnesota Wild are certainly a tale of two different teams these days. They are just a mess at home these days, which is just plain goofy. And it's not like they played a bad game against Edmonton last night. There were certainly some iffy play here and there, but I still saw a lot of stuff I really liked.
I thought Darcy Kuemper had a great game even. He was seeing the puck really well, anticipating, getting into position, and cutting down angles really well. A little sloppy on that Connor McDavid game winner but over all a really good show from him.
I suppose it's a good thing that when the Wild slip into the playoffs as an 8 seed, they wont have to worry about any pesky extra home games.
Anyway, next up for your Minnesota Wild we go back out on the road to play the Montreal Canadiens who could be out one P.K. Subban after he suffered a goofy, scary injury last night. He would just add to a long injury report the Canadiens are hamstrung with right now that includes Brendan Gallagher, Tom Gilbert, Jeff Petry, and Carey Price who has been on the shelf since Thanksgiving.
So, grab a cup of joe, your favorite barcode reader, and lets get walking!
