Last night's game was a giant nothing burger for the Wild. The Wild started out well enough, even scoring the first goal of the contest. Then the wheels came off. The team wasn't skating, looking rather lethargic and uninterested.
Making matters worse, Devan Dubnyk was way off his game. Whether due to injury or just Dubs having a bad day, it took the coaching staff a full 2 periods to figure this out, and by then the damage had been done.
On to the music...
This band fell into my lap one day this past summer and has quickly catapulted it’s way to the top of my personal charts. Please, please, please, if you live in the Philadelphia area and know the guys in Three Legged Fox, please, oh please, tell them to tour in Minnesota. Thank you!!!

A good game to blindly believe the score is 0-0 and come in for the 3rd period only.

If you watch the full replay, Kunin seemed a little too eager to jump in and throw a punch. My non-hockey player advice kid, save your hands for dangles.
