I wrote up the game preview today.  @MNSOTA will be writing the post-gamers probably for the rest of the regular season.  She will write one one up after Wednesday's game.  This is another good test for the Wild who are coming off what had to have been an emotional overtime win against the Blues on Saturday night.  As Vegas and Colorado battle it out for the top spot in the division, they should be very motivated as should the Wild to give this series a fair amount of intensity.  No doubt Vegas will want to prove to themselves as much as anyone that they can handle the Wild.  It should be a good series.  Enjoy and discuss!

Absolutely - it's like a whole different team...  I suffered through those Heatley years too...  : )

A good point about VGK's motivation. They don't want to enter the playoffs without leaving the impression that the Wild will quite have a handful with them in any playoffs series.

Another 2 important games for the mental and physical preparation for the playoffs this season.Our point will be to change VGK motivation towards creating an impression of extremely difficult team to play against them.

And seriously, why would you challenge a phantom call when playing Vegas, the NHL’s golden child?
