Wilderness Walk: Another Chance

The Minnesota Wild will take on the New York Islanders. It’s only the second game of a six game homestand (the longest of the season), so the Wild should be hungry for a win. This is a great opportunity to make up some ground in the Central, but they need to find a way to close out games. They are trying a new approach, as reported below, called “fun”. Sounds suspicious to me.
