MINNESOTA WILD KEEPS GETTING BETTER
It definitely feels like the Minnesota Wild is hitting their stride at perfect time. With the NHL Playoffs right around the corner my favorite team is clicking on all cylinders. I felt as though the Wild was ripe for a letdown after their huge win on Thursday in Colorado. The Avalanche were all but left for dead in the chase for the last playoff spot by losing that pivotal game to the Minnesota Wild. Instead of a letdown, The Minnesota Wild dominated the Edmonton Oilers and won easily 4-1. By losing to the Minnesota Wild today, it is now getting to the point that the Edmonton Oilers playoff chances are on life support. They have fallen seven points behind eighth seed Calgary for the last playoff spot. With how well Backstrom, Gaborik, Burns and the rest of the Minnesota Wild are playing right now, I wouldn't be surprised if the Wild caught the Vancouver Canucks and won their division. More importantly, I would be even less surprised if the Wild rode this momentum all the way to the Stanley Cup. GO WILD!!!
