PETER FORSBERG WHO?
In what could be argued the biggest win of the year, the Minnesota Wild ruined Peter Forsberg's debut with the Nashville Predators by a score of 4-1. Peter Forsberg arrived in Nasville via a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers who received two players and two draft picks in exchange for former NHL MVP Forsberg. Nashville came into the game with 81 points and sat atop the Western Conference. The Minnesota Wild won the game on goals by Pavol Demitra, Pierre Marc Bouchard, Branko Radivojevic and Marian Gaborik. Niklas Backstrom improved to 6-1-1 in place of injured goalie Manny Fernandez. The win brought the Minnesota Wild within one point of division leading Vancouver. It is really getting fun to be a fan of the Minnesota Wild.
