Wild might catch a break tonight, as 1/2 of the Flames team is hurting.
of course Curtis Glencross is due for a 2-goal performance against us.
This is already a "trap" game for the Wild, feeling smug after winning on Saturday, now they play a team that just got trounced by Vancouver ... but we are playing in the Saddledome, that forsaken barn, that once kept us something like 0-452-2.
We need to play hard the entire time, give 110% every shift, we got to stick to our game plan, trust our instincts, dictate the play, and if we get some puck luck, the breaks might come our way. (did I forget any of the timeless cliches?)
This might be one of those high scoring games we all dream the Wild could have. Unless Mikka is playing.
I hate Calgary more than any other of our division rivals. The first Wild game i watched, they lost to Calgary in a shootout at home, the game where Clutterbuck had 2 goals and started becoming a star in his rookie season.
One of my best friends even became a Flames fan because of my new love for the Wild so we could have rivalries. We would spend hours and hours on NHL 09 playing Minnesota vs Calgary, and it was always great fun. I know most of these games are usually boring, but that just gives me another reason to hate Calgary.
