TCF Bank Stadium. Wild vs. pretty much any of their division would be great, but would prefer Blues, Hawks (ugh), Jets (imagine the old school jerseys), Stars (team in en fuego and prob will still be next year).
Think it makes sense - hockey pretty big in Minnesota, could host for college/junior/high school etc games outside of the actual WC and I bet it would be a great event even if they can't get beer sold at college stadium, I remember that being a hurdle that needed to be crossed for hosting at Michigan Stadium.
Very nice win for our boys. What a showing from Larkin and Mrazek. I think we all had expectations for Larkin and he's exceeded them and then some. I personally didn't realize how fast he was, and now he's showing toughness. What could be next?
Let's run back another one in the win column tomorrow night.
In reality, will it be Marchenko or Kindl in tonight? Kindl hasn't played a game in a while but is left-handed fill in for Kronner. Marchenko played well to begin but then was taken out, reasonably, for Smith.
My pipe dream is Kindl and Marchenko both in and Zid out, who has had a few poor games in a row.
I am very happy and relieved and proud of DRW for making the playoffs for 24 straight seasons. It's an amazing accomplishment.
I also can do without the extreme negativity, never fun.
But I disagree with a sentiment of, "Hey let's be happy we're in, this team is still great!" Yes they are, but they have faltered after looking extremely promising at several points during this season. Further, expectations are reasonably high for this franchise. I believe it is understandable to be disappointed with this team. We invest so much as fans and sure, these runs to the playoffs are great, but it is not baseless to be somewhat disappointed.
All being said, love this team til I die and here's to an improbable playoff run. Cheers!
