Thanks for the pre-gamer. That Regan clip was funny. Watching the Wild sometimes makes me forget that obvious fact that hockey is a game. They play. Playing is supposed to be fun. Let's have a fun game, and hope for Fiala and Kap find some fun to their playing as well, so we get the goals, and Foligno and Greenway have some fun as well, so we get to see the hits necessary to win :)

Whatever happens, it's been fun. Go Wild!


On a sidenote: hope Wild win just so I can rub it in the face of my coworker, he loathes the Wild. 😂

At least your pal notices the Wild 😄

Reaves and McNabb might also be back. Along with the possibility of Foligno out, that sounds bad. We have not played well without Foligno.

I did not find any info from the Michael Russo twit if Foligno will be out. But I found a video there how he took care of Whitecloud:

I also found out that the Wild team is a single team in NHL history which was able to win in 7 games in both rounds after losing series 1:3 (against Colorado and Vancouver teams). Actually that significant hockey event happened under Jacques Lemaire's coaching during 2003 playoffs season.

Here is how Wikipedia described the Wild team success of 2003 playoffs season. Hope we will be able to repeat it tonight at least in one round.

" the Wild, in their first-ever playoff appearance, made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals before being swept 4–0 by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Previously, the Wild had beaten the favored and third-seeded Colorado Avalanche in the first round in seven games, coming back from a 3–1 series deficit and winning both Game 6 and 7 in overtime. Brunette scored the series-clinching goal, the last on Patrick Roy. In the Western Conference semi-finals, the Wild beat the fourth-seeded Vancouver Canucks, again in seven games, and again after being down 3–1 in a series. In the process, the Wild became the first team in playoff history to capture a seven-game series twice after facing elimination during Game 5."

If Reaves is out I think we win. 

According to the last news, unfortunately, Reaves is cleared to play, but McNabb is still on Covid protocol. Maybe Foligno will be able to take care of him like he did with Whitecloud?🤔

Nicely done. 😎

What is up with the Foligno talk last game and again tonight? A little cat and mouse??
Unless he lost a limb or something, I can't see him not playing. 
And did I hear correctly Max Pac is back?

Same message sending Vegas fans to their team. I just looked at their VGK twit. More than 12,000.00 fans allowed at arena for this game. Twit already is talking about their win and during a second round will be no masks any more at arena.


But I would say to our team

 I, probably, will miss our Wild fans forum during the game, because I have got a call to my friend to watch this game on a big TV screen in his house.

Totally understood. Enjoy the big screen.
