Wilderness Walk: First Saturday of the Regular Season

NHL: Vegas Golden Knights at Minnesota Wild Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Hockey is back. Thank the lord. And the first Saturday of the NHL regular season saw 26 teams in action on the first “busy day” of the season. Some teams have things to work on, while others hope the success they have had in the first couple of games continue. For the Wild, that is not the case. Badly out played, and out-shot we hope things will change very soon or this could be a long 82 game season.
