Clutter did have a nice hit though, it was on Kane I think. And, I liked how the D roughed up sharp. Falk almost laid someone out too.

Not sure whether I'll laugh or cry if this team somehow manages to collapse and miss the playoffs again.

What if they make the playoffs, but have to face the Ducks or Hawks?

I've never wanted to see Vancouver in the postseason so badly. I think it'd be a great matchup, and the best chance for the Wild to possibly move on.

For the record, the Wild can go 2-6-1 and they'd still make the playoffs.

Do you really believe PHX would go 7-1-1? That's 1 (if not, the only one) way to miss the playoffs I'd say.

Aren't the Jackets 5 points behind us?

I think people are also forgetting how tough our opponents have been lately and how much easier they will be at the end of the season.

Of the 9 remaining games we have-

Oilers x2
Flames x2
Avs
Blue Jackets

That's probably because of the fact that most are Minnesota sports fans.



On a more serious note, seeing as CGY and COL are in tank mode, I wouldn't be surprise if the Wild destroyed them.

Colorado yes. Calgary eh.

Edmonton scares me. They end with Minnesota, Phoenix, and Calgary.

Dallas doesn't. Too hard of a schedule.

I know Edmonton is 7 points back but they can make up those points quickly. Beat Minnesota twice, Phoenix and Calgary. 8 right there.

I'm still kinda baffled with Bouchard. I bet half the time he himself doesn't have any idea what he's trying to do. Other than "I. MUST. NOT. PASS. THE. PUCK!"

When I drove by the X an hour before the game, it was all Hawks fans outside. When I went to the Hawks game a couple years ago, the Hawks fans were way louder than the Wild fans, loud and proud. Just kind of a fact, Wild fans are mellow and they don't usually have much to cheer for.

I wish the Wild could play like the Blackhawks. Moving their feet, good puck movement, supporting each other. They all seem to be on the same page. I don't know if that's because of coaching or just something that comes from playing with each other for a while, but I hope the Wild can get there. The way the Wild play just seems sloppy.

This is not a "sky is falling" post, far from it....

But our 1st line played like dog **** last night. Parise had his worst game of the season, Koivu was invisible and Pominville looked like he was still trying to figure out where he fits on that line.

Clutterbuck sucks. Bouchard needs to be benched.

Is Brodziak hurt? Seriously. There HAS to be some explanation for his seemingly lazy play.

Russo is right, Setoguchi IS a lost puppy with Cullen. Matt - please get healthy....QUICK!!!!

Suter, Brodin, Falk and Spurgeon played pretty well, I thought.

Stoner? Don't get me started, I may have a stroke.

Backstrom kept it a one goal game. He needs to get re-signed ASAP.

All that being said, I'm confident they get back on track. But get Zucker up here and insert him in Bouchard's spot on the 2nd line with Granlund and Setoguchi.

I know its moot because they are the #1 team in the Conference/League. But I honestly think they want to do everything in their power to drive ratings high. For that to happen they need the big name team to be hot.

And I see that Russo put out there that Suter played 32 minutes that game. Holy defensive collapse.

If we don't get anything against the Blues, then we damn well better stomp Columbus into oblivion or we are dead.

We are most likely in even if we just win Calgary twice and Oilers and Avs once.

Making the playoffs would be nice, because it has been so long. But going into the playoffs while not playing well to end the season could be disastrous.

Isn't it more fun to panic now so we can also fret over Buffalo potentially winning the draft lottery with our pick if/when we miss the playoffs ?
