4/30/13 - WCQF PLAYOFFS Game 1 Minnesota @ Chicago - 7:00 p.m. CDT - FSN/NBCSN/CBC
 
This it it boys and girls. The playoffs.



Yes Jim Mora. Playoffs. At the United Center in Chicago.

It has been quite the ride. The ups and downs the last 5 years have been many. We've seen teams come a couple points short and we've seen collapses that have gotten us used to golf in April. Playoff beards? Not here, not in the State of Hockey.



But that changes now! The Wild are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and playing the Presidents Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks. It's a classic 8 vs. 1 match-up with a rivalry between two cities that have rivalries (did I say rivalry enough? Rivalry!) throughout sports and culture.

On another team this sucks.

Game 1 is tonight and sets the tone for the series. Does anyone outside of the State of Hockey bubble think the Wild have a chance? No. That's okay, it's nothing new. Did anyone think the Wild had a chance for Parise and Suter? Nope...but they'll play tonight. Did anyone bother to learn Mikko Koivu's name? Nope...but he'll captain a playoff team.

Prove them wrong. As the song says, we will fight to the end. I'm happy to have this journey with everyone and to cap it off with some playoff hockey.

Oh one more thing..

It's time!

I think this will be a close game ending 2-1 or 3-2.

Northland Wild Man 04-30-2013 09:30 AM

If the Wild play their game they have a good chance tonight. We have to take 1 of 2 in Chicago to have a chance in the series.

tomgilbertfan 04-30-2013 09:33 AM

Wild come out strong and force a close game.

Ten hours till the game and I'm already totally pumped.

NugarifiK 04-30-2013 09:58 AM

Excited to hear Pominville is ready to go. We finally have 3 scoring lines again. Backstrom needs to stand on his head if we're going to make it out of this series.

Piffles 04-30-2013 10:13 AM

I rocked the mustache for the must win, and it's all gone now. I'm ready to start the playoff beard.

GO WILD!

Caior89 04-30-2013 10:16 AM

Have a strong feeling this will be a close game with a lot of hits and hard work for both teams, very playoff like

You nailed it.

Wild MUST take 1 of 2 in Chicago.

elnewby 04-30-2013 10:18 AM

I'm really happy that I have to work tonight.............


Also, I expect Clutterbuck to be a machine during the playoffs.

mnwildgophers 04-30-2013 10:37 AM

Let's go Wild!

Nothing to lose, can't hold anything back now.

Sharppi 04-30-2013 10:38 AM

Playoffs ladies and gentlemen! Here we go!

Wild Caniac 04-30-2013 10:39 AM

whooooooooooooooooooooo!

LETS GO WILD

I think we steal game 1, Chicago comes unprepared.

Paul Bunyan 04-30-2013 10:47 AM

Fantastic GDT intro.

Can't wait for this....need to take at least one here, hoping it starts tonight.

Kermie 04-30-2013 10:48 AM

Shaved the face this morning to start the playoff beard! Let's hope this thing gets some good growth!

Super glad that Pominville is back. Gives us a 2A and 2B line to compete with the Hawks depth. Hopefully Backs is ready.

hirawl 04-30-2013 10:50 AM

Tonight we'll see what people like Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise are made really of. Add Jason Pominville. Add Ryan Suter. ****ing leaders and fighters par excellence. Matt Cullen. Niklas Backstrom. Seasoned veterans. Jonas Brodin. Charlie Coyle. Rookies getting their first taste. Devin Setoguchi. P-M Bouchard. Skill and speed. Everyone else. It's going to be great. They will dump and chase and they will grind the Hawks down. They will score. They will win.

tyratoku 04-30-2013 10:51 AM

Last week of classes before finals.

Sun is shining.

Landlords put in new carpet in the hallways.

Wild are going to kick some ass tonight.

I'm hyped as ****.

bigbluebird 04-30-2013 11:00 AM

Rangers fan here, but I'm rooting for you guys. Fun team to watch. Good luck!
