Wilderness Walk: It’s been a long week

It feels like it’s been a year since the Wild got destroyed in Colorado.

You’re probably trying to erase it from your memory, so my apologies for bringing this up, but do you recall when the Wild went on the road and got obliterated 7-2 by the Colorado Avalanche? Doesn’t it feel like that was a century ago? Well, believe it or not, less than a week has passed since that fateful night.

This week has felt SO LONG!

My reasoning is that it’s the first full work week for most of us since the holidays, and we just aren’t used to being back in the Monday through Friday grind yet. This whole “working five days” thing totally sucks. Making matters worse is that with no Wild hockey next week because of the bye, we’re in for another long one.

But you know something? It’s Friday. The Wild won Wednesday ON THE ROAD against the Blackhawks, and it has two huge home matchups coming tomorrow and Sunday. Plus, our Vikings are in the playoffs Sunday, meaning we could have a great weekend or a horrible weekend. So seize the day, Wilderness!

The Newsies take you through today’s Walk.
