ESPN Gives Wild the Benefit of the Doubt, Up Two Spots

Pierre LeBrun of ESPN gave the Wild some credit for having a winning road trip, it seems. A two spot jump certainly suggests he sees something the rest of us don’t, but when you pull a parachute, often times there is a slight jump in altitude, too. No worries.

LeBrun has the Wild up to 22 from 24 last week. Here is his comment on the state of the team:

Goalie Niklas Backstrom has been lit up like a Christmas tree over the past four weeks.

Indeed. All Backstrom needs is some tinsel and candy canes. Maybe some ba… never mind.
