chip, in 10 years can you write a story on one of the greatest moments in Wild history? I can see the lead in now, "Wild takes OT win during 4-1 series loss to Chicago in 1st round of playoffs, but what an incredible win it was!!!"

Falk might have crossed the line, but I thought it served a purpose. They didn't lose their minds like Canadiens and the Canucks did last night, where they were punished on the scoreboard for playing on the wrong side of the line. The Wild played exactly right last night, and 1 well placed roughing penalty didn't end up hurting a bit. Can't continue to do a bunch of that, but in the context of the way the Wild usually play, it was refreshing to see.

Now that they know this is how they need to play...will they keep it up?

Agree with veegez. Would rather see them go a bit too far than not far enough. Keep up the physical play. It's really fun to watch.

It is a shame that our next game is set to start at 8:30 or after the Pitt/Islander game. So maybe even 9:00. It's a shame that so many of the Wild's biggest fans (kids) won't be able to watch most of the game. Let alone many of us fans that need to work in the morning.It would be understood if we were playing a western team.
