Watched the game before I went in to work this morning. Beautiful presentation on HD Net. I'm glad I waited to watch this one.
Beauty win for the Wild against the Avs. As everyone knows by now, Wild win 3-2, with goals by Todd Fedoruk on a nice play with Demitra, Brian Rolston on a beauty of a slap shot, and Pavol Demitra on a rebound from a Foster shot.
Niklas Backstrom was pretty shaky at the start, giving up big rebounds and knocking one in off himself, but settled in to play a pretty nice game.
So the Wild go into the All-Star break one point up in the Northwest Division. Hopefully the team gets good rest and comes back ready to play next Wednesday v. Anaheim. I'd love to see us put some space between Vancouver, Calgary, and Colorado. One can hope.
- Another goal against with #41 on the ice...(this was a request from JB)
- Brian Rolston scored again - I am so a motivator!
- Jordan Leopold actually plays hockey!
Marian Gaborik is participating in the breakaway relay for sure, probably not in the fastest skater so he doesn't blow his groin. The skills competition and All-Star Game is available on Versus (in HD), so make sure to look for it up the dial.
