Wild vs. Sharks post-game and more

Backstrom has 47 saves but it was not enough in 3-2 road loss to San Jose

Top of the evenin' to ya laddies and lasses out there. Of course its St. Patrick's Day, a day set aside to commemorate the patron saint of Ireland. Its a day where lots of people all over the United States and Canada claim to have a little Irish in their heritage as the perfect excuse to wear green and celebrate in style at pubs and bars all over your community. No team in the NHL is better for celebrating St. Patrick's Day than the Toronto St. Pat's. The St. Pat's existed from 1918 to 1927, before they became the Toronto Maple Leafs. Unlike the Maple Leafs, the Toronto St. Pats did have a bit more luck during its existence comparatively to the last 43 years for the Leafs as they managed to win a Stanley Cup in 1922. Toronto is hoping proud Irishman Brian Burke can rebuild the Leafs into a Cup contender once again. Only time will tell.

There is another team that sometimes finds itself clad in 'green' that could use some luck of the Irish and that is the Minnesota Wild. The Wild have had a rough go of it since just prior to the trade deadline where they are 3-6-1 over their last ten games. Minnesota is in need of some lucky bounces / breaks to go their way if they are to have any hope at all of making the playoffs. As of right now the team is dangerously close to 'mathmatically eliminated' which means their overall chances are about slim to none. I am not the most optimistic person out there, but for those of you that are this team has to earn a victory tonight no matter what. So whether you're Irish or not, bring out whatever lucky talisman you may have and wish a little luck for the Wild because they're going to need it. Will luck be enough for a victory tonight? (click on the link for the rest of the article)

(sigh) The Wild are really circling the drain now. Not seeing much hope here anymore. Some better effort but again too little, too late. In addition to the normal post-game report there is a prospect report on Brett Bulmer and Johan Larsson. Enjoy!

A good friend will bail you out of jail, but your best friend will be the one sitting next to you saying "That was fucking awesome!"
