Wilderness Walk: hockey again!

NHL: Minnesota Wild at Calgary Flames Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

Wilderness! Hockey is back! The Wild take on the... uh, hold on I have it here somewhere. *squints at paper* The Canvouver Nacucks? Something like that. Van-Hoover-Ham-hocks? Close enough for jazz, I guess.

In any case, make sure you head over to Nucks Misconduct to hear their side of the story. They’ll probably have donuts for you there!

IN the meantime, enjoy this old chestnut from the masters themselves.
