Well, hopefully the Wild can keep those special teams pumping. Last night's game was really one sided in the Wild's favor. A couple of beauty Power Play goals and the penalty kill was solid as ever. But on the other hand, Phoenix looked really sloppy and tired.

Looks like Columbus has played well over the last 4 or 5 games, so this should be a tougher matchup. Hoping that Columbus has as much problems with their back to back as Phoenix did. Have a great time at the X!

Agree. Phoenix was very sloppy and tired. Score could have been 5 or 6 if Illya didn't make some good saves.

Every game at the X is a great one to watch. Greaty sightlines and everything. Only thing that may be a damper is if the Wild play flat and have that "don't care" attitude throughout the game.

Hope you have fun and it's worth the trip.

You coming from Ely? That's a hike. When you leaving, now? winkgrincrazy

It should be a good game. They did play well yesterday and watching the game got me really really pumped for tomorrow.

I did too notice that phoenix was a lil sloppy. The wild were skating circles around them it looked like. Hopefully the Wild will still be in a go get em attitude tomorrow.

Yea im comin from Ely. I am going to be leaving in about an hour or so down to my dads house. Long drive for a game but always worth it!

That's to bad. The way he is playing you probably won't see any goals. frown

What a game last night. That game was so good and they were playing well. They looked a lil tired in the 2nd. Probably one of the best games I have ever seen in person. The shoot-out was a bonus and you gotta love the new guys putting points up on the board when we need them

Didn't get a chance to watch all of it. Looked pretty decent though. Oh, except for that debacle Shep got himself into.

Gabby who?

I guess ya had to be there because from the couch that game against Columbus was the most boring I have watched for a long time. Icing after icing, offsides galore, etc. little offensive flow, etc. At least we got the extra point!

You won't be 8 rows behind Luongo unless you are in his living room. He is out for a while with a strained abductor. They say he is week to week.

    •     They were in all different stages on this lake, was messed up and I didn't know what was going on
    • Good Borch!   I have seen a large up tick of birds locally as well this last.  Although not hunting.   Trying to convince the wife and kids to hit a time or two yet.
    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
