THIS BOAT IS OBVIOUSLY SINKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS BUILDING'S TOTALLY BURNING DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, we're just about to start the third period, and I don't really have to start watching to tell you what's going to happen. Unless the hockey gods want me to re-do this stuff for a laugh (which I won't argue. I'll be happy to take one for the team), this is it for the Wild tonight. The Wild will lose, again. Another road game. And by my count, that takes the Wild to 3-9 against Western Conference playoff teams.
The Wild are still in the thick of things, but at the same time, it ain't looking great for the Wild.
But hey, the Iowa Wild won tonight! That's something.
Anyway, we're pretty busy, so let's get on to the Walk.
Road woes continue for Wild in loss at San Jose | Star Tribune
Sharks 3, Wild 1: Penalty kill is Minnesota's undoing - TwinCities.com- To be fair, putting them on the power play 5 times doesn't exactly help.
Brett Bulmer recalled, Jason Zucker scratched vs. San Jose; Mike Yeo on 2nd line: "Somebody has to step up" | Russo's Rants | StarTribune.com- All of the notes from yesterday.

Wild's Brett Bulmer: 'I want to see what he can do,' coach says - TwinCities.com- What'd you guys think?
Minnesota Wild Recalls Forward Brett Bulmer- The Wild added Bulmer, which seems pretty smart to me. His size and physicality is something that not many people who can take a regular shift for the Wild have. Hopefully he can stand out on the Wild.
Wild notes: Coyle shows signs of sparking second line | Star Tribune- The second line wasn't very sparked tonight, unfortunately. The Wild need Granlund back badly.
