SOMTIMES IT IS OK TO LOSE
At first, I was super disappointed about the Minnesota Wild losing to the Vancouver Canucks on Valentines Day. A few minuted later, I stopped being a baby and came to the realization that there is now way that the Minnesota Wild is going to win the rest of their games this year. I then spent some time looking for the silver lining in the loss. First of all, The Minnesota Wild played well and no one got hurt. Second of all, Backstrom is proving to be an excellent goalie while Manny Fernandez is hurt. It feels a lot better knowing that the Minnesota Wild will enter the NHL playoffs with two competent goalies. Lastly, even while losing, the Minnesota Wild seem to be peaking at the time. The future looks bright for Jacques Lemaire and the Minnesota Wild.
