Tonight should be a big game for the Minnesota Wild for several reasons. #1 The Wild are coming off a giant victory over the Hurricanes last Saturday #2 this is one of those inter-division games that the Wild need to win and #3 all of the Wild players are finally healthy. The NHL’s policy of having division teams face each other eight times a year has drawn heavy criticism, but a game like tonight between the Minnesota Wild and Vancouver Canucks has huge implications, which is exactly what the NHL wanted.
The Wild should be able to slide into a win tonight. They have outscored Vancouver, 18-9 this season and with Gaborik, Demitra and Walz firing on all cylinders there should be a few goals tonight as well. Vancouver has settled into more of a defensive game this year and the Wild will be ready to pounce on any open puck. It’s Valentine’s Day and I am sure the Xcel Energy Center will have a Kiss Cam for tonight’s game so grab your sweetie and head out to the “X” to see a stellar game! Need tickets? There are still good Minnesota Wild Tickets available! Go Wild!
