We are going to play tonight against a very offensively minded team on their home ice. I would be pleased if we will get a point out of this game. My prediction is 4:5 in OT (or OT).

Matt Dumba back with Brodin. Looks it like he’ll be back in #mnwild lineup tomorrow after being scratched twice in a row. No other lineup/line changes.

I think its likely Tampa gets revenge for that blowout up in Minnesota.  Defensive minded Lightning may win this one vs the Wild who have cooled off of late.  

I agree. Probably it is going to be a revenge game for Tampa team. I will be happy at least with one point from this game. We are in our standings just 1 point ahead of Colorado; 4 points ahead of Nashville and 5 points ahead of St. Louis. And we are 10 points behind of Dallas team (1st place) and 9 points behind of Winnipeg team (2nd place). It seems a lot.

Boston seems like they are on a mission.  Lindy has his Devils playing out of their minds too.  I also think Rangers and Leafs are dangerous as Tamp are as usual but lack offense.  The West has been strange.  Co not dominant as expected, Vegas good when they have Eichel, Dallas right up there with scoring and solid goalie.  I still hope Blues make a late run. But not starting tonight when my Sabres visit.  I’m shocked the Kings are in the mix.  I don’t think they can last

So what you're saying is, A deal fell through. ;)

@RussoHockey

3 games in hand on the wildcard teams, but #mnwild probably need to get their **** together

I think the Wild are a good team that could come out of the West. It would help to maybe add a piece at trade deadline.  They don’t have McKinnon or Eichel or Teresenko

Midds wins that one by far. 😎

 

I'd say Nick Paul held his own..... yep, I'd give it to Middleton, but Paul isn't a fighter, but he is a big strong boy.
Middleton being more the pugilist and it showed.

Game overall has been a bit nasty. 
Wonder how long we see a Maroon vs Reaves?
