Wilderness Walk - HELP! Edition

NHL: Vegas Golden Knights at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The call went out early this morning. HELP! I need somebody! HELP! Not just anybody! HELP! You know I need someone! HELP!

Enter The Noogie.

So I’m bringing you today’s walk due to some technical difficulties, and we’re running a little behind so my apologies for that. At any rate, there is just nobody that can beat the LA Kings right now in the 3rd period. It just doesn’t happen. They’re something like a +6 million in goal differential in the 3rd period and we’re just a quarter of the way through the season. No other team in the league can even sniff those numbers. Granted, the Kings have scored plenty of ENG’s to help pad those stats, but that means they were already winning so the numbers are still plenty impressive.

The Wild continue on with their California road trip after a couple days off. They’ll cross the street from Staples Center to faceoff against the Anaheim (Mighty) Ducks of Anaheim this Friday. Another big test and the Wild really need to start getting some points here if the hope to remain relevant in the playoff race. (PLAYOFFS!?!?!)

Today’s music, well there’s really only one choice now is there?
