I guess the NHL season just started.
I've noticed that they don't really play that Gary Glitter song anymore at hockey games. Huh. I wonder why...
The Wild still aren't scoring much (64 GF - good for 9th out of 15 teams in the conference) but they don't give up much either (57 GA - 5/15 in the conference) and they seem to know exactly when to step up their game. I don't know where I heard the stat (or if it's even accurate) but apparently the Wild have won more games after trailing than any team in the league. In hockey, all that matters is wins and losses...oh, and overtime wins.
The Wild (16-7-3) leads the NHL with 35 points. Since we last talked they are 5-2-0 and are 8-2-0 over their last 10 games. They are currently atop both the Western Conference and the Northwest Division, 2 points ahead of Detroit and Chicago and 6 points ahead of Vancouver. Here's how they got there:
