I am pained to admit that I have trouble watching the team these days. Sure, I enjoy good defensive hockey as much as the next Wild fan, but it would definitely make it a bit more appealing to see some actual goals scored. Maybe they'll get the offense ramped-up today in Los Angeles. Maybe Marian Gaborik will skate on Wednesday and hats will be thrown on the ice. And maybe, just maybe, James Sheppard and PMB will start scoring regularly again. And monkeys might fly out of my butt too.
