Wild vs. Blackhawks post-game and much more

Too little too late as the Wild fall out of the playoff picture in 4-2 home loss to Chicago

Written by Derek Felska | 27 February 2011

Tense. Uncertain. Nervous.

Those are three words that could accurately describe the benches of both the Minnesota Wild and the Chicago Blackhawks. If there are players on either bench that don't fully understand the ramifications of a loss tonight, I would be beyond shocked. Ideally, one would hope that both teams come out with fire tonight. However, it is more likely that they both come out with their collective poker faces tonight, cautiously feeling out the opposition. It is not unusual in situations such as these, that the first period if often slow, and quiet. It's also not unusual for a team to try an tire out their opponent, whether through playing a physical game or simply forcing the other team to test their own endurance. It's truly hard to say what will happen, as both teams have to weigh the risks. An error in judgment could easily spell doom. For the Wild, the stakes are huge. A win tonight, and they maintain their current presence in the playoff picture. A loss, and they're back on the outside. If there's one thing that the Wild have going for them, even if they lose, they know they can fight their way back in. It's been their story since the All-Star Break. Adversity has brought them where they are today. So its just a matter of who will take a step forward and who will take a step back? (click on the link for the rest of the article)

There is a complete post-game, as well as a prospect report that features Casey Wellman and Darcy Kuemper. In addition is a near-complete rundown of the Class 2A Boys Section Finals that will be coming near the end of this week. Included is my picks, check it out.
