Wild Face Oilers Tonight in Battle of the Biggest Losers

Not a whole heck of a lot to draw people in for this one. Taylor Hall is hurt, Kurtis Foster is hurt, there are no playoff implications, there are few draft implications. The sheer amount of nothing this game offers is astounding.

Of course, it is still hockey, and Wild fans are going to be hungry come April 11th, so maybe they tune in just for a hockey fix. Niklas Backstrom does bring in a 13-0-0 record at home against the Oilers, so who knows, maybe the Wild pull out a win for the high paying fans on Fan Appreciation night.

While nothing seems to be overly exciting about this one, this is still the NHL, and anything could happen. Tune out at your own risk.
