It's been awhile, but I'm back in Minnesota, and the Wild are back to winning. Or at least they were until tonight, they are currently sucking against an extremely depleted Blues team.
I went to the game last night, and COLTON GILLIES GOT HIS FIRST NHL GOAL! I was so excited for him, cause he is a top contender to be my favorite Wild player if he hasn't earned the title already.
Gillies wasn't the only one last night, Veilleux, Koivu, and Bouchard also added goals to make it 4-1, Wild. I got worried when the Isles opened the scoring, but we tied it up, and then in the third it was game over.
I'm a little bummed that the only two players on the Isles that I like weren't playing last night, but you know, it happens. It was good to be back, and it was good all around. Johnsson, though. The should not have taken the C away from Mikko after he got a goal, almost a fight, and the first star...I feel like he would have fared better in a fight than his brother (who is currently playing the Sabres 3-3 in the third).
The Leafs are killing the Pens. I have no idea how this is happening, but I like.
I should be at all the Wild games from now until January 13th, so if you are going to be there, leave me comment/text/facebook post/email, and we should hang out!
