    At this one.

    - We yelled "Shoot" for the Brodin goal, so you're welcome.

    - Biggest cheer of the night was when Fiala lit up a dude mid ice. That seemed to be the momentum shift in the stadium.

    - The contrast of Gigi Marvin intently watching the game and Audra Martin scrolling her phone was hilarious.

    - The crowd noise isn't as awful as it once was when fans were first let back. I feel they've worked out the kinks a bit more.

    - Things are a lot more "touchless" than the last game I went to. Everything was smoother and pretty easy from a fan standpoint.

    That puck movement on the Brodin goal is exactly what we need to do more of the PP. Too many times our shot opportunities are too predictable. That touch pass by Fiala almost forced Brodin to shoot...it was the perfect weight, and because it was so quick, Brodin had an open lane for his shot, at least until it got in the net area, which is all you can ask for....or maybe we just need Paul Bunyan to coach them up.

    We still think we're looking and Ehlers-ish contract, or has he graduated to Connor-ish?

    It was fantastic.

    They came out of the gates pretty sluggish tonight, but then ended up on the high they can play at when they really turn it on.

    This team has been one of the most enjoyable for me to watch in the history of the franchise---in person and on TV. For those of you that either can't go or haven't been yet I will say I can see the difference in person, and it provides just that much more value. It's not even the finished product either.

    As a Minnesotan I'm obviously pessimistic about everything in our sporting landscape, but this team and especially if Guerin can add to it could really be something.

    Ehlers-ish. 69 point pace last year, 66 this year (so far). But, still a career high of 54 points, which factors into it.

    Happy for Fiala; sick little give and go. Feels odd, but can say congrats in this divisional alignment.

    It’s been speculated amongst my family members that they might be trying to groom Gigi to take Audra’s place.

    I don’t know one person that likes her.

    If we continue line shuffling I’d really love to see this lineup instead. The way teams have been starting to play Kap makes me think he needs big bodies around him to free up some space as he seems to get doubled quite often.

    greenway - ek - Kap
    Zucc - Rask - Fiala
    Foligno - Sturm - Hartmann
    Parise - Bonino - bjugstad

    I’d like to see the GEEF line stay playing together and Sturm get some top line games consistently. I think there is a lot of upside to Sturm if he’s given some consistent time with skill players.

    I don’t disagree, just really want to free Kap up as he is getting run over an mauled every shift. He needs someone to take some bodies off him that’s why greenway and ek make sense. Hartmann Sturm and Foligno can be the new geef line as they all three are known to play defense and can play north south hockey with offensive upside.

    Looked like Evason got my memo. I couldn't believe how quick Dumba and Brodin were changing in the first period. I wasn't too happy about the third pairs play but it seems like those guys didn't give up more than 2 even strength goals all of April. Can't let 4 d all have more than 20 minutes of ice time per game and you can't let Dumba play more than 23 minutes. He played 21 and a half last night. Enjoy the win.

    One thing that is very encouraging about the last 2 games is the way the goals were scored. Zuccarello's goal is maybe the best example. It's a simple high dump in, but someone (Kaprisov), makes a very skilled play on the puck and you get a goal out of nowhere.

    This kind of thing never happened in years past, and it is the hallmark of Chicago's Cup Winners. Kane was always doing something like that. It's what highly skilled players do, and it's nice to have some on our side.

    Could she flat out host though? She could definitely fill any of the analyst spots and seems to be doing well in that regard as the "in studio" color. In my circle most people can't stand Walz.

    As to Audra I think most people miss Jamie Hersch. She's elite, is #oneofus which always plays well here and when that is the comparison it's hard to beat.

    Hosting is a completely different skillset. Same way as they aren't "grooming" Ryan Carter to replace LaPanta or anything.

    Until we get more top 6 help next year, i think you are right. The JEE line is dominant as a 3rd, checking line, but we should probably use some of those pieces on the top two lines if the play gets overly physical. Hartman, Sturm, and Foligno would be a good 3rd line in itself.

    I agree. If anyone else was going to move into that spot it would be Sabo, Emmer etc.

    Exactly. Next year we reevaluate lines but with how physical it’s been recently Kap just gets run at all day. He still makes it work but we could make life much easier on him and our shut down line wouldn’t fall off that much as those three can and do play good defense.

    Overrated. Talent and skill at the job are far more important.

    How was I wrong? Dumba is awful when he won't get off the ice. Yeah he might pick up a point here or there but his play in his own end? The no look back hand pass the other night was stupid. One of the first things you learn is no back hand passes at the offensive blue line or anywhere near your own end. Dumba and the Wild defense haven't been reminded enough. I don't remember any back hand passes last night but I did not see the whole game. Was there any? Do you know what a back hand pass is?

    Reversing the play behind the net is extremely common. That one just went bad because Dumba mis-identified the other guys on the ice.
