The Minnesota Wild is sitting at 11-4-1, fourth in the Western Conference, just a point behind Vancouver Canucks, tonight’s Xcel Energy Center foe.
The Canucks are the first team of five that the Minnesota Wild will face on their upcoming home stand. The five games will be played on an every other day schedule starting tonight. I am sure it wasn’t divinely planned like that, but it’s kind of cool to play a game, have a night off, play a game, have a night off and there won’t be any plane trips to worry about.
The upcoming Minensota Wild schedule looks like this:
Thu Nov 20, 2008 Canucks @ Wild 7PM
Sat Nov 22, 2008 Blues @Wild 7PM
Mon Nov 24, 2008 Capitals@ Wild 7PM
Wed Nov 26, 2008 Stars@ Wild 7PM
*Happy Turkey Day*
Fri Nov 28, 2008 Lightning@ Wild 1PM
The Wild have been playing very solid hockey lately and I see plenty of chances to pick-up some points in the next five games – I am to the point of saying, Marian who?
