KNOW YOUR ENEMY

-The Wild may be a low-scoring team right now, but they don't allow many goals against either. They won their last game 2-1 in a shootout over the Oilers. Dany Heatley tied the game with 2 seconds left.

-The Canucks were 4-2 against the Wild last season and the scores in those games were generally lopsided. So expect the unexpected when these 2 teams play eachother. Always entertaining.

-At the beginning of each month the Wild are having a "Mustache Boy" shootout contest during practice. Pretty sweet idea. Guess who the loser was for October.

The Last Meeting: The President's Trophy was handed out, Manny made a studly return, and The KesLORD PUNISHED Minny for their collective sins:

This Clutterbuck fail will never get old:

COCONUTS!
