Wild vs. Predators post-game report

Predators devour the Wild with fast start to defeat Minnesota 4-0

Written by Derek Felska | 10 March 2011

"On the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again, the life I love is making music with my friends, and I can't wait to get on the road again, on the road again, goin' places that I've never been, seein' things I may never see again," is Willie Nelson's legendary song On the Road Again and it really describes last month for the Wild. Of course back at home, 'March madness' the high school version at least is in full-swing as the Boys High School State Hockey Tournament is in full swing and that means the Wild must take its game on the road while the Xcel Energy Center hosts the state tournament. Wild fans often complain about the amount of time the team spends away from the friendly confines but its of its own making. Its simply a side effect of playing in the State of Hockey. Minnesota has a real tough road stretch over its next four games including tonight's match up against the Nashville Predators. The Predators, have the exact opposite problem where most of its remaining games are at home. Good news for Nashville, normally not so good for the Wild although this season Minnesota has been a little better outside the State of Hockey.

It is your classic late-season slugfest between teams fighting for the last playoff spot and the winner will likely be who gets out to a fast start. Both teams have stingy team defense, but offensively they do not put fear in just about anyone, other than themselves of course. With my heart still in St. Paul thinking high school hockey, the Wild must be prepared to play a very focused Predators team otherwise it might mistake Nashville for New Orleans as they'll be singing the blues. Can the Wild get their 4-game road trip off to a good start or will it stumble out of the gate? (click on the link for the rest of the article)

Ugly game and unfortunately kind of predictable too. The Predators wanted it more, and the Wild seem to find a way to make another team's AHL journeyman look like NHL studs. (shakes head in disgust) Shameful all around. Check it out...
