MNSOTA wrote up the game preview, I'll be on the post gamer.  As rough as it was for this team against Pittsburgh, I think this game could even be worse.  The Lightning are on fire lately, and playing that deadly combination of putting 4+ goals easily per night and not giving up much defensively.  That doesn't bode well for the Wild who are playing about as bad defensively as they have all season, especially on the penalty kill where they can't they're are almost money for giving up (at least) one power play goal per game.  What do you all think?

Not sure why I'm going to watch this game tonight.

 

I must be part masochist.

 

Or maybe it's my German Schadenfreude...

 

But I used to love watching the Gong Show...

I think it is not the best time for the Wild team history which already created few questions among media and fans: to tank or not to tank? to trade or not to trade? to fire the coach or not to fire him ASAP? According to our poor standings we have got earlier the last place of Central Division( in January), in comparison to the previous year (if I remember, in March). We badly need some crucial changes in the team. Are we capable to make them?

I am very skeptical regarding a tonight game result but still planning to watch.

Looks like Der Kapitan is centering the FOURTH line tonight. What’s the odds on that lasting more than one shift...

Probably as close as Boudreau will get to benching an underperforming vet...

I’m watching tonight. I’m hoping for an old fashioned beat down.

Lightning very fast in the offensive zone, keeping the Wild hemmed in.

Minnesota was doing better zoning Bolts players...they tried going man to man, TB is outskating them.

Impressive set up by EEK and Kunin…. Kunin missed the open net though!

Lightning dodged one there on a sudden offensive burst by two of the Wild's younger players.

Is this how Mrs. Tkachuk feels when the Flames play the Senators?  😁


No, this is like deciding between the son that got a PhD, married a Miss Universe, and has two prodigy children and Ricky from Trailerpark Boys...

Someone on Russo’s Twitter feed that the Wild’s top line is a combined 100+ years old...

Get a delayed penalty and just pass it around the perimeter before you cough it up. Good strategy Wild...

Probably factual, but also sounds like someone has too much time on their hands... 😁

      Hidden Content   The Wild are lucky Tampa Bay was overlooking us tonight.  We were able to get enough offense to win and defend when we needed to.  Stalock made the key stops to keep Tampa Bay sleepwalking...not pretty, but we'll take it.  Foligno had another great game, and so did Greenway.  Koivu stayed on the 4th line, and that's where he needs to say.  He can't freakin' move, almost at all.  I have a full game recap, an extended
