ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – From long lines for Wild T-shirts, to packed hockey bars even when the team’s on the road –- St. Paul’s getting a financial boost from the postseason run of the state’s favorite hockey team.

Cossetta’s manager said people ordered pizzas in record numbers to take home when the Wild played in Chicago last week.

And on Tuesday night, manager Ray Vanyo is hoping their remodeled rooftop will be packed.

“The extended season is huge for us especially because it was a shortened season,” he said. “To get the extra playoff games is great.”

As for Jamie and Michael Freeman, they’re on their honeymoon this week.

“We’re going to try and find some tickets,” she said.

Taylor Jabs already has hers.

“We’ve gone to 13 games, so pretty much all of them,” Jabs said. “And we’re not even season ticket holders.”

Vanyo put the day in perspective.

“When everyone’s going to a hockey game in their shorts and flip-flops that’s a special time in Minnesota,” he said.
