Wild Blog: Wild Vs. Blackhawks – So Close, Yet So Far

Wild Blog: Home Ice Advantage

The first two games they played at Xcel Energy Center this year were shutouts, and on Saturday they killed Tampa Bay by a score of 7-2. There’s no question the Wild seem to do better in St. Paul where they’ve got 18,000 screaming fans in their corner.
