The Captain-less must Play ON



Tonight the captain-less Wild will take on the captain-less Flyers in Philadelphia, game time 7:00 EST.  The Flyers have adjusted their style of play with success without Pronger.  The Wild on the otherhand are a team that lacks offense and without their all star Mikko Koivo and  they will need to find a way to create scoring by committee . Which reminds me one of my favorite scenes  from “Finding Nemo” where Dora tells the netted school of fish to “just keep swimmng” “just keep swimming” “just keep swimming” …

For this team cannot be successful in the weeks ahead without a concerted group effort that starts with tonight’s game.  Kyle Brodziak will need to light it up again as he did in November wth linemate Devin Setuguchi and Heatley  and Johnson will play alongside Matt Cullen on the first line.  Carson McMillan was called up yesterday and will play on the fourth line he will become the 15th member of last year’s Houston Aeros team to play for the Wild this season.  Greg Zanon will sit again as a healthy scratch as Lundin willl play on the first defensive pair with Schultz.  In goal for the first time against the Flyers will be JoshHarding.

Possible Line-Ups








Harding / Backstrom

Also tonight, the Wild will have it’s own special cheering section as the player’s fathers are on a special trip to travel with their sons for tonight’s game and will continue their trip onto Toronto.  I wonder sometimes why the teams rarely plan Mother-Son trips.  I know there are a lot of hockey moms out there who have also given a ton of time in support of their sons.  A 4-5 day trip with the team would definitely be a blast.

Billiant. Not sure how many hockey bloggers can fit in a Finding Nemo quote. Excellent work :)

Wild are going to work extra hard with the fathers attending. Hopefully Bryz won't spot you guys 2 or 3 in the 1st.

The Wild really need to get going in a different direction - literally speaking. They've gone from tops in the league to clinging to 8th and now they've lost Koivu for a few weeks.

Whoa, nice trench.
