Wilderness Walk: Wild vs. Flames
It really doesn't matter what happens tomorrow morning: the hockey world already knows what it wants to tell you about the Vancouver Canucks. Surprisingly enough, they're wrong again.
Not the medal game everyone anticipated, but Team Canada can still close out the WJC with hardware today. They take on Team Finland at noon PST.
The Canucks round out their homestand with a big game against the Minnesota Wild. Please focus on this game and avert your gaze from future contests...
The Wild will be motivated make no mistake. And they will be getting some help up front as Devin Setoguchi and Casey Wellman are ready to return to the line up.
Semi Final time at the World Junior Championships tonight. Canada looks to avenge their loss to the Russians last year while Sweden and Finland clash.
