Well, here begins another 2-game road trip. Unfortunately, it's a back-to-back, with tonight in Minnesota and tomorrow in Chicago. There's a bit of bad blood in the division rivalry, mainly coming from how annoying it is that the Canucks always play down to the level of the Wild, and keep letting them win our valuable points. Believe me, I've seen this a lot. Another factor in this division rivalry is the goonery. When you have Rick Rypien and Darcy Hordichuk on one side, and Derek Boogard on the other, there's bound to be some fighting. Unfortunately, however, 2 of those guys are now out East, so we'll have to see what happens for that part of the rivalry.
