NHL: Minnesota Wild at Vancouver Canucks Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Wilderness, as I write this my phone has told me the Wild were ahead 2-1, tied 2-2 on a Dubnyk goal, and behind 3-1, all within seconds of each update. In other words: no one knows WHAT is going on. In any case, I have to work early tomorrow, and therefore am falling asleep, so I apologize, but this Walk will not have the outcome in it. You’ll have to rot in mystery!

Kidding, of course. The result and recap can be found at the Star Tribune or NHL.

In the meantime, let’s walk!
