The heroes of Canton St. Paul return to rob from the rich Kings and give to the State of Hockey. Your Minnesota Wild is back for season 2 of the Parise/Suter Era and coming off the team's first playoff appearance since 2008. Our love for them now ain't hard to explain. Years of waiting and nurturing prospects is paying off with several wearing green sweaters tonight. More importantly, the regular season opens with a certain black hat named Dustin Brown returning to the scene of the crime. He's also trying to play it cool for some reason or another. But before we build any statues downtown or boo a player for taking the population of Pominville, the Kings are up first on the road to Stanley. Tonight's game starts at 7 p.m. locally (5 p.m. LA time, 3 AM Finland time) and airs on NBC Sports Net although FSN will have a one-hour pregame. It's time to return to the NHL regular season... ...and continue the party... WELCOME BACK HF WILD! LET'S START THE SEASON IN STYLE!
