10/25/10 - Los Angeles @ Minnesota - 7:00PM CDT - VS
"I can't slow down, I can't hold, though you know I wish I could. Oh no there ain't no rest for the wicked, until we close our eyes for good."
After a 5-1 thrashing, the Minnesota Wild look to return home and face the resurgent Los Angeles Kings on national television Monday night. The Kings, coming off of a 6-4 victory over the Colorado Avalanche Saturday night and winners in four of their last five games, will be without defensive stud Drew Doughty but nonetheless looking to make a statement in a nationally televised game. I'm sure there's more but it's 1:30 in the afternoon; let's just get this thread started. Go Unicorns!
The Kings, like our friend above from Chicago, are a group of young overachievers who will get their way by any means necessary. Whether it's tank and rebuild through the draft or tank and sell moonshine, you can certain that young Al Capone is a force to be reckoned with in the future. And by that I mean read a history book.
The History section. Not just for hipsters.
The Wild, like Sheriff Eli Thompson, are cast in the shadow of their older, more well-known brother but still contain a lot of evil. Whether it is their own bidding or Nucky's, Sheriff Thompson has been known to commit a murder or two and abuse his power in Atlantic City. With a few players who will do anything to win, Minnesota looks to keep its stronghold on the Mississippi and liquor business at least until Arnold Rothstein comes crawling back from New York.

"Will beats skill when skill doesn't have enough will."
-Barker out, Kobasew in along with Clayton Stoner.
-Kings have no Doughty or Schenn which means that there's no reason to discuss the team on HF besides the obligatory JMFJ mention.
-Wild PR and security are doing nothing with the visitor's tunnel.
As much as I enjoy these pre-game pictures and non-sense, I'd appreciate it more if they were kept to a minimum so it didn't take a minute for this page to load and then consequently have to scroll down for several seconds to navigate past the huge photos.
