The Skinny: Lookin' For A Roll

 


Two teams that have battled recent inconsistency clash tonight at Nationwide Arena. Minnesota has won two straight after a four-game winless skid (0-3-1), and they're doing so in front of red-hot goaltender Josh Harding. Thought Harding is not expected to play tonight against the Blue Jackets, don't expect the Wild to play any differently around Niklas Backstrom, who knows these Jackets well from their days in the Western Conference. The Blue Jackets must be ready to match the Wild's energy level, as they played an emotional game last night against the Blackhawks and won in dramatic fashion with a late third-period goal. These two teams have gotten results when they stick to their systems, so it shouldn't be surprising if this game comes down to a matter of mistakes.
