I'm going to guess we beat them in overtime, seems to be a trend this season for them. 2-1.
Schultz and Burns with goals.
I dunno.. I don't think the holes are patched yet. I'm going to go with the Ducks, 3-1. Over on the wild.com boards a lot of people seem down on the D, but I think most of our problems are on the offensive side, and I don't see those problems disappearing just yet. Still struggling and searching for a some chemistry.
On a side note, I think the team is playing about how they should be expected to play. A bit worse, I guess, but not amazingly worse. Just a bit of a slump. Defensively we're ok, offensively there are sparks now and then. I find myself expecting us to play close games against good teams, and just flat out beat the average teams. I need to convince myself that despite last year's great run, this is an average team. Nothing wrong with that, there are a lot of average teams. Average is fine, no reason to expect to be consistently better than average in the 4th season, is there?
