I would like to see the Wild win, obvs.  But honestly, I'm enjoying the fact that the Wild are one of two teams that are the talk of the NHL universe right now.  I'mma just soak all that in and enjoy.

 

Anyone else have any thoughts on the game tomorrow?

Gee, Dubz, why don't you hop on a podcast and share your thoughts? 

 

Oh. Wait.

I'm a Wild hockey fan.

Unlikely scenario to end 2016. I like the historical aspect, as in never been seen/done before.

Something's gotta give.

 

A month ago, if someone said this game between streaking teams would be between the Wild and Blue Jackets, who would have agreed? Maybe the Blues and Canadiens or Pens and Blackhawks, but not these usual gutter dusters.

is it me or is Parise, a shell of his former self?  Still seeing the work ethic, but his hands are so different than the past.  Previous versions of him berries that bunny.  

 

In breaking news Columbus is for real.  Wow complete team.

 

Anyone else not know the rule of fights after a whistle?  I had no clue that was a thing.  Torts loved that Dumba got goaded into fighting, even though he won, he was done for the night...I thought that was a turning point.

 

I thought our best players tonight were not 11, 12, 9 and as usual 28.  Need vets to be good.

 

Time for a new streak.

Parise has been like that since last season.

 

His salary is keeping him on the first line and power play units.
