On the 10th “Wild” Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a Wild win in the state of hockey!WHAT. A. GAME! The Minnesota Wild put the Detroit Red Wings over their knee and gave them a spanking that’s bound to hurt for days to come! WOW!
I mean come on, where to start?! Gustavsson continued his incredible play between the pipes while all lines steamrolled the visiting team. Goals provided by Freddy x2 (empty net), Dumba and Zucc, and ICYMI, Reavo nearly killed a guy! Easily his best game of the season, no doubt.Feeling bad for the beatdown the Wild gave Detroit a “Minnesota nice” goal in the second only to follow up with a “HA. KIDDING” goal by Zuccy seconds later. This, by the way, extended his point streak to 8 games, just two games shy of his career best. CLASSIC! As the buzzer sounded which led to the third, the Wild held their own to tally yet another W.
Living in Arizona I could hear the roar of the X and that’s how it should be. Fans cheering for a team that seems to have found their groove even without Hartman and Duhaime. Going 8-2 in their last ten games, this team is continuing to show the league that they’re much more than just an average hockey club.With three straight wins under their belts, the Minnesota Wild will continue their home play on Friday night against a Chicago team that’s like Cousin Eddie’s personality from National Lampoon’s.
A beautiful night in the state of hockey and as always, let’s never forget… LET’S. GO. WILD!
