  • Minnesota Wild @ Chicago Blackhawks - The Morning (well, afternoon) After





    After an outstanding first period, the Wild found themselves with a 3-0 lead. Apparently they then decided to do a bit of scoreboard watching of the Twins game and the White Sox battle with Cleveland, because they certainly weren't playing hockey anymore.

    Four unanswered goals, two directly attributed to horrendous play by defenseman Erik Reitz, utlimately cost the Wild in the preseason tilt with the Blackhawks.

    My initial thoughts last night were that Reitz was going to get an earful from Jacques Lemaire, for sloppy play in his own end, a cardinal sin in Lemaire's system. Shockingly, I wasn't wrong.

    From the Star Tribune:

    "I mean, I had a feeling at a time, maybe I'm going to bench a couple guys."
    Michael Russo's take:

    Looks like I was wrong on Gillies last night. These things happen when you're relying on the radio broadcast for your analysis.

    Notes from the other side

    Chicago SunTimes

    Unfortunately, there's not a lot of coverage in the Chicago press for the preseason. That's a bit disappointing. Hopefully once the regular season begins, that will change, because this young team is full of talent and should be a major factor in the West.
