Wasn't that the title of some bad Jack Nicholson movie? Anyhoo, that's the title of today's post because the Wild play a critical game in southern Alberta tonight against the Flamers. Despite Calgary's best efforts to bring in some new faces, their team has yet to win consistently. Miikka's been pretty good this year (albeit far from prior Vezina form) and they've been dreadful on the road. Having said that, however, tonight they play at home where they have been outstandingly good and will surely be up for the game.
I hope #24 is in the lineup for the Wild tonight, bringing a physical presence to the ice. I also am eager to see Adam "Do it all" Hall continue to assert himself and can't wait to see how Dommy Moore looks in the road whites.
The game is on national TV in Canada tonight so it will be especially nice to thump the Flames in front of millions of canucks. I plan on making some french toast with a side of back bacon, eh. Prediction: Wild 5 (Gaborik 4, Moore 1), Flames 2 (Vail, Clement).
