I'd have to look it up but I thought the Wild have done really well on national TV games...

This will be the first real test of the season if you ask me.

Hoping for no injuries. I love watching Koivu play.
I have to entirely agree with you. lol

I love watching your team play.

Good luck tonight! Hope we have a great, clean game.

Have my doubts about this game. St. Louis is strong, physical, and 5th in goals for per game.

Line changes are something they just had to do.

Tough game ahead.

It's official: Dumba back to Red Deer to make room for Scandella call-up.

Penalties is something they can't afford to take in this game. Blues' pp is deadly.

Scandella-Brodin would make sense.

I saw Russo tweet that. Disappointed he never got to play, but oh well. Thought he'd get some ice time against Columbus but I was wrong.

Russo also just tweeted that the lines will probably be:

Suter - Gilbert
Brodin - Scandella
Stoner - Falk

Eh. I'd like to split up Brodin and Scandella, but overall I like it.

It's alright..I'm sure it was a great experience to be able to practice and hang out with the NHL team for a few games. I'm sure it helped his confidence a ton to know that he was the Wild's next option in the previous four games if anyone got hurt.

Don't get me wrong guys, the game will look much more like 3-3 after 3 periods but the result will be 6-1. Wild will get one goal disallowed and one shot will hit both 2 posts and the crossbar. Blues will get 2 lucky bounces and Cullen will put one own goal.

Close game but somehow I still doubt everything, it's just probably coz I have so much respect for the St. Louis Blues, I think they are one of the WCF attendees this year.

I don't like the Suter - Gilbert pairing. They play too similar of a game.

Agreed. I'd like Suter - Brodin, Gilbert - Scandella, but I don't know if they want to give Brodin the big minutes yet.

Can't expect your team to be a playoff team and then curl into a ball and cry the first time they face a real challenge. 6-1 Wild!

Yeah, we deserve an upset after losing two perfectly winnable games. Either way, I have a gut feeling that we're gonna see a good game played tonight, win or lose.

Prediction: Wild win 4-3 in OT.

46-2!

Wild vs. Blues games are typically pretty entertaining.

Wild 7-2.
Hell yeah!

I think we'll make them earn that win tonight.

We've lost two, true, but they were not blowouts, and aside from some fixable mistakes, we could have had both of them. Do you guys remember the Wild/Wings games of yore? Geesus they were painful to watch...

If we click well and the guys show up, which I bet they do, we could take this one.

We're not that bad, despite what some of the old women out there think

You're clearly underestimating the bandwagon factor in Minnesota.

That being said, everyone who sat through last season and is still there should never, ever be accused of bandwagonism.
