GameDay: @ Minnesota (8-9-3-0), 8:00

Tonight is the second of four games between these two clubs this season. The last game was a 1-1 tie and was played last Saturday night, also in Minnesota. The Wings will look to avoid losing two in a row after being shut out by the Jackets 3-0 on Thursday night. The Wild have just one win in their last four games while the Wings have just one loss in their last six. Dominik Hasek is still out with a groin injury and Manny Legace started in the two games last so expect Curtis Joseph to get the start. Ray Whitney is questionable for tonight with a groin injury of his own. Mark Mowers will play in his spot once again. I'll be flipping back and forth between this game and the Heritage Classic tonight, though it sounds like the outdoor game may not happen after all, at least not tonight. The old-timers game will begin at 4:30 on CBC as scheduled but the temperatures in Edmonton are so extreme today that the regular season game between the Oilers and the Habs may be called off because of safety concerns. That'd be a real shame. If the game does in fact go on, it will be begin at 7:00 and will be aired on CBC.
