Well, I'm off to the City by the Lake tomorrow for the weekend. A person can only go so long without having some Sammy's Pizza(*), so up the Interstate I go.
The Wild play at Chicago tonight and are back home against the North Stars tomorrow. My gut tells me Manny will get the start tonight followed by Backstrom on Saturday. With Vancouver red-hot on the road and Edmonton starting to heat up it is crucial that the club get a minimum 3 points from these 2 games. Look for Blackhawk killer and Jes Golbez fave Pavol Demitra to have a HUGE game tonight.
(*) Yes, I know Sammy's now has locations in the Twin Cities, but it isn't quite the same. I can't put my finger on it, but their pizzas down here just aren't the same, maybe not greasy enough.
