HUGE OVERTIME WIN FOR MINNESOTA WILD
Last night's overtime victory over the division leading Vancouver Canucks was a huge victory which brought the Minnesota Wild within one point of the division lead. ONE POINT! After falling behind 2-0 in the first period, the Minnesota Wild stormed back to win the game despite another great performance by Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo. Of all the teams ahead of the Wild in the playoff hunt, the Vancouver Canucks scare me the most. I am afraid of the ability of Roberto Luongo to completely shut down the opposing team. The outstanding goal tending of Giguere for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, the last time the Wild made it to the playoffs, is way too fresh in my memory. It sure would be nice if the Minnesota Wild won the division and the only way that they would play the Roberto Luongo and the rest of the Vancouver Canucks again would be with the home ice advantage. GO WILD!!!
