The Minnesota Wild is a team in top form. They have won their last five games and have looked dominant for the most part. Now, they get to head off to sunny California, where the weather is warm and the hockey teams are bad.
Starting on Wednesday, they have a back-to-back facing the Anaheim Ducks and the San Jose Sharks — two teams near the bottom of the league — and that’s it for the pre-holiday slate of games. Just two teams that have some talent but surely not the depth that can keep up with our Wild.
No game is easy, but we can at least feel a bit more confident about these this week.
Off the trail...
