As a Wild fan, I can tell you Columbus improved a bit since last season and they clearly provoked flames into the Wild organization after their first game against but nevermind. I don't think the "if you lose against Columbus, you get problems" applies with Eastern Conference teams though.
Also, Garon will start for Columbus.
oh and I really wouldn't be surprised if RDS would make 1 intermission interview with either Vermette, Brassard or Garon.
I am interested in seeing how many people show up to this game in Columbus tonight...
if they cant draw a crowd tonight... eeeek
go habs go!
You're underestimating what has (sadly) become the most important factor as to whether or not Columbus fans show up: whether the game is on a Friday/Saturday night or not. 12,000 would be a good turnout.
Nash - Brassard - Voracek (Brass has been semi-hot lately, the other 2 cold)
Filatov - Vermette - Umberger (Filly's first game back on the 2nd line after a demotion, Vermette VERY cold, Umberger works hard all the time)
Dorsett - Pahlsson - Clark (Clark is our leader in points, Dorsett has two goals already, Pahlsson is Pahlsson)
Wilson - MacKenzie - Boll (Wilson has been hot, DMac OK, Boll is Boll)
Garon has better stats than Mason. When Mason has a bad game, it is really bad.
Main problems - top skill guys trying to be too fancy/cute. They just need to shoot and stop over passing.
