    This next week or so feels like a make-or-break scenario for the Minnesota Wild. This is the beginning of a home-and-home against the Winnipeg Jets and then they are hosting the Calgary Flames -- two teams who are vying for the same playoff spots the Wild are. Well, the Jets already have the lead, but the Wild can make more than enough ground to really cement themselves as a Wild Card if they walk away with a couple wins under their belt.

    When: 1:00 p.m. CT
    Where: CanadaLife Center
    TV: Bally Sports North
    Radio: KFAN 100.3

    Where is the team (and culture) of grit and toughness that Guerin is supposedly building?

    The Jets took liberties with Kaprizov once again, and the referees looked the other way and called no penalty. How can this team claim to have grit and toughness, when other teams so freely take liberties with star Wild players?

    Hopefully it's nothing serious with the Kaprizov and Gus bus injuries, but the Wild need to change how they play. Brodin is still on IR because of a dirty hit.

    Foligno and Maroon should be embarrassed the way they allowed Winnipeg to manhandle our team all game. Middleton had to be the one to stand and defend the Kaprisov injury (again). There better be some serious payback during tomorrow’s game. Foligno will likely step up but Maroon is simply collecting a paycheck and has showed zero toughness or team spirit since he has been here.
