Lundqvist is booted after the Wild's 4th, then they get another. 5-2 Wild.

And 7-4 is the final. That's 10 straight wins, a franchise record. Go Wild!

Wow--  I try to wean myself-- been fighting the urge to jump on the bandwagon with this streak going on, what with all the snakebites I've gotten from Minny pro hockey, since the early North Star days.  But I could no longer stay away, with this big Eastern trip.  Wow, again-- taking 'em both convincingly from these 2 teams in their own ponds--I'm impressed.  Screw my better judgement, I'm on the bandwagon now, to stay.  Staal and Brucie have really made a difference this year-- 2 guys I've always liked.  I'm glad they're on our side now!

 

The team's made a believer outta me.  Caveat:  I still think we should retake the North Stars name.  Guess I just hate nicknames that are uncountable nouns / adjectives.
