MINNESOTA v. COLUMBUS
I commented on Friday that I really hate Western Canada road trips. Then the Wild went out and played two of their best games so far (40+ shots in both Calgary and Vancouver) and if not for goaltending breaking against them both times (Kiprusoff and Luongo were good, Harding wasn’t), they would have collected 4 points in those games.
Go back and watch the Calgary game – that’s going to be a tough one to beat for game of the year.
Oh yeah, also there’s a game tonight. The Blue Jackets come to town struggling (2-7-4 in the last 13) and they’re coming off a loss to the Predators last night. Things are set up pretty well for the Wild.
Bold Prediction – Blue Jackets score first.
(By the way I hope everyone noticed that I got the prediction right on Saturday – directly resulting in a Wild loss. Never again.)
