According to Russo, Zidlicky is questionable and Latendresse (who isn't listed in our lines right now) is probable.

There's seriously no better way to start off the season than Kenny ****ing Powers. It works on so many levels.

1. We are playing the Carolina Hurricanes. Kenny Powers is from Shelby, NC and comes at you like a ****ing hurricane.
2. It's a debut entrance, much like how this is the first game of the season.
3. This was done in a game played in a foreign country. Tomorrow's game is in Finland.
4. The Wild represent the State of Hockey and fighting for the rights of every man.

Oh, while the "Real American" torch was passed off to Kenny Powers, the true Real American will always be this man:

I did know that. There's actually quite a few pro wrestlers from the Twin Cities. Or at least there was - I haven't followed wrestling since WCW got bought out and I grew up.

When do we get to learn about the opposing team and/or fan base? Hope you continue that because it was the best part of game day threads last year.

Sometime in the future, although I might have to be creative with two straight games against the Hurricanes.

i <3 kenny powers. hilarious! bravo!

No zidlicky means we'll see probably four fewer odd man rushes against.

i bet wellman gets the nod over staubitz. it's carolina. but maybe they're going to feel a bit snarky after being run by the russians all night.

c'mon wild!!! 3-1 carolina.

They are sort of mutual, but probably WCW getting bought out. I was 14 when that happened.

I'm pumped, I actually get to watch this game live, but not Friday's edition.

I think we'll see a super fast 1st period, a little slower 2nd, and a ramped up 3rd this game. Backstrom will be good and lead us to victory in a 2-1 thriller...or he'll give up 4 goals. The choice is his.

Any predictions for our first goal of the year (should it happen tomorrow...hopefully).

I'm thinking Bruno on the PP.

I'm going with Falk on a shot from the point that pinballs of a Carolina defender.

The Wild's beat writer (Russo) said Backs is starting both games. So barring injury, no. He'll be returned to Houston when the Wild get back to the states.
