The great shutout is over and the Wild continue to not play a full 60 minutes. One of these days they are going to have to figure that out, which could prove to be a challenge with only 1 game in the next 9 days as they will need to be mindful of shaking the rust out. Hopefullly, this provides the injured players some time to recuperate, and the team will continue to be thin at practice as it will almost assuredly return the 3 Iowa callups to Iowa until Saturday.
Maybe Haula can return on Saturday in a building where he's been very good and save the day....
