After getting a beating handed to them by the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Minnesota Wild continue their road trip in sunny Florida, taking on the Panthers. Another, very good team.
The Wild just got the news that captain Jared Spurgeon is out for the season and that they are miles behind the race for a Wild Card spot. It seems incredibly unlikely that they will be able to reach the postseason, but they will certainly keep trying and tonight will be no different. At least this roster has some fun players to watch, unlike when they were almost all gone with injuries.
