Consolidating two games down into one. Sorry again, schedule has been pretty busy especially now that the season is starting to come to and end. Hoping my April is going to be a little more busy with the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs but we'll see. The Wild have 13 more games in the regular season and currently hold the 2nd Wild Card spot in the Western Conference, tied with the Avalanche at 74 points.
Anyway, the Avalanche came back to Xcel hoping to extend their lead on Minnesota in the standings, however they left with a 6-3 loss.
The Oilers game was a different story. Edmonton has been a perennial bottom feeder team and were missing 4 of their 6 starting defensemen if memory serves me right. This should've been a relatively easy game for them to take control of but in true Minnesota fashion they did the best they could to make it as difficult as possible and they left Xcel with a stinker of a loss, 2-1. The plus side to all of this is that I got to see Connor McDavid, the #1 overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. This kid is the real deal.
That's all for me. Thursday - Saturday I'm covering the Big Ten Hockey tournament (RIP WCHA of old) so I'll post again once that's over. See you then.
