Roughly 15 years ago, I boldly established “the best day of my life.” It was during a meet-and-greet session with the hottest boy band at the peak of their success — yes, I’m talking about the Backstreet Boys.

After a long hiatus, Pearl Jam is coming back to the Twin Cities, marking the band’s first performance in more than eight years.
When a performer like Lady Gaga stops through town, there’s plenty of pressure to ensure the gift she’s given is as unique and creative as the pop singer herself. Add in the fact that this is her third time performing in St. Paul and there’s the added challenge to find something outside-the-box and new.
Lady Gaga is bringing her artRAVE tour to the Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday, May 20, and as is the practice of a good host, she will be receiving gifts. It’s a tradition the Xcel does with all acts. In the past they have given Gaga shoes and Minnesota-made clothing.

History has a tendency to repeat itself. For the third playoff series in a row, the Minnesota Wild went into Game 3 at Xcel Energy Center looking for their first win, being down two games to none. And thanks to a pair of Finns, the Wild got that victory on home ice, defeating the Chicago Blackhawks 4-0. Chicago now leads the series two games to one with Game 4 on Friday night.
The Minnesota Wild came back to the comfort of home, already trailing Chicago by two games in the Western Conference semifinals. They were in this position just two weeks ago, so there’s obvious precedent for a rebound. But over that same time span, the Blackhawks are unbeaten.

Zach Parise scored early and late on tipped shots, and the Minnesota Wild tacked on two empty-net goals for a 5-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Monday night that sent the first-round playoff series to a decisive Game 7. Parise and Mikko Koivu each had two assists. The teams will meet again in Denver on Wednesday night, with the winner taking on the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference semifinals.
Center Matt Duchene has returned to the Colorado lineup. Duchene’s status for Game 6 of the first-round series at Minnesota was determined just before faceoff on Monday night. Coach Patrick Roy said earlier in the day that Duchene would have to be cleared by the team’s medical staff after taking part in warmups in order to play.
