Wilderness Walk: Striking a Balance

Today is a new day with a new opportunity to strike the difficult balance between the two as the Wild take on the Tampa Bay Lightning to start their five game road trip. There are some key games on this trip, especially against another former Boudrea-coached team in the Washington Capitals.
