The Wild played a good game tonight. THIS one was lost by Backstrom...giving up 2 bad goals and then we all know he sucks in the SO. They worked so hard to actually get 3 GOALS tonight, only to lose because of their holey goalie.

Entertaining well paced game, might be time to let Schultz watch one from the press box and maybe we should consider pulling Backs with a minute left in overtime for an extra skater. Might be the higher percentage play ??

That must have been an exciting finish tonight for Leo and Fletch, 2 points would take them out of a higher draft pick. Oh I miss the old articles that were wrote about how Leo just can't sleep at night after a loss and how he just gets so so torn up inside when the Wild lose.... Those articles were cute and so so sweet, like a sour sweet heart eaten after laying in a pasture with cows 2 years old..... heheheh, just sayin

1) Cullen couldnt score on an open net right now. 2) How many more SO's do we have to lose before Harding gets put in? 3) Schultz/Lundin are just painful to watch play.

I'm so annoyed with the experience at the X, even the PA guy's voice is grating to hear. I associate his voice with failure as he's also the PA at Target Field...is there anyone else available?

Great to see Koivo make the same move every shootout. Maybe it's time he tries something else. The real good news for the Wild organization is that the Winnipeg Jets fan base is incredibly annoying. Seems like the start of a rivalry to me...

Typical FSN broadcast. The Wild have 9 shots through 2 periods and Greenlay says "If you play like that you win more than you lose". It's like listening to a third grade play, without the cuteness. Sargeant Schultz has once again shown "he knows nothing" and should be a spectator. I don't know how you can keep coddling Backstrom, the guys a headcase. Other than that it's SSDD

Might be irrelevant, but judging by the post game show fans in the background they got some homely women in Winnipeg. Att least we got win in that category.
