  • Where's the feisty in Wild versus Blackhawks?


    In these playoffs, there's none of the hysterics of that April 1st, 2012 game. Whenever there's a scrum, it seems like the players are going through the motions--responding because it's what they are used to doing rather than feeling genuine ire. The Wild and their fans should hate these guys! They won the Cup last year! Why is there so much respect!?!

    Yet both sides are playing clean and disciplined hockey. Is all this mildness because they "respect" the guys on the other side? Maybe. It could be that the theatrics of their first round match-ups left them too tired to build animosity for an opponent that, all things considered, isn't tremendously evil. Perhaps this series will last long enough for the teams to get a good hate burning. Or maybe the team that wins this series will emerge with enough energy to attack whichever California team is still left standing. Now that's series with a lot of violence.
