Ok, so no Spezza sightings last night, but I did manage to eat a ridiculous amount of beef and mashed potatoes, so the night was a success nonetheless.
Tonight's game against Ottawa is another one of those "must get 2 points if the team is to be taken seriously" games. I can honestly say I haven't watched more than 1 period of Sens hockey this season, but I think they can still score in bunches sometimes. Having said that, if the Wild score 3 they win, simple as that.
Tonight also marks the return of defenseman Filip Kuba. Kuba, a former WPB whipping boy, was Martin Skoua here before Martin Skoula arrived. Until Brent Burns gets the nod someday, Kuba remains the only Wild defenseman to make an All Star Team, but it should be mentioned that he really only made it because the game was played in St. Paul.
