Sunday was a busy sports day for Minnesota. The Vikings took on a division rival in Detroit and came away big winners. Around the time this article was published, Minnesota United was getting ready for their first-ever MLS playoff game. In between those two events, the Minnesota Wild took on the Montreal Canadiens in St. Paul. The Wild, who are in danger of becoming an afterthought in the Minnesota sports scene, were desperate to get things going in the right direction.
The first several minutes of the first period were fairly quiet, but with the way things have been going for the Wild this season, no news is goods news.
