Well we found out the answer tonight whether the Wild could beat the Blackhawks and end their unbeaten streak (NO). The Blackhawks are the best team in the league right now and it showed. They capitalized on every Wild mistake and put them in a hole early. On the bright side, Minnesota right now is where Chicago was a few years ago in regard to rebuilding. There is a lot of young talent on the Wild and in the system that need time to develop. The future for the team is bright.
On another subject altogether, if you are in the northern hemisphere be sure to look for comet PANSTARRS next week after sunset in the west. Start looking around the 8th with binoculars, their wide field makes them ideal for spotting the comet against the twilight sky. Try to find a location with a good view of the western horizon away from city lights.
