Wilderness Walk: Goals for Everyone

NHL: Minnesota Wild at Ottawa Senators
Nate “Pross the Boss” Prosser doing his thing.
Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

I feel like the past few games have been a mini-renaissance for Nate Prosser. He even scored a goal last night, a well-placed wrister that utilized a screen to beat Craig Anderson. He has been playing the body and keeping his game simple. Given all of that, I thought it fair to give Prosser the limited honor of having a photo of him for today's Walk. Naturally, the first photo that caught my eye was Prosser doing the other thing that has come to define his game besides keeping it simple, i.e. getting Prossered.

Some things never change. Last night, thankfully, the Wild did manage to change something about their play as of late. They scored goals left and right. It was a good game to do so as the defense, goaltending, and penalty killing weren't going to get the job done. Perhaps they decided to follow the example the Ottowa Senators had been providing up to Mikko Koivu's first goal in what felt like forever. When in Ro- Ottowa!
