Conference III Championship Belt Tale of The Tape: Minnesota at Dallas, 15 November 2014
Tonight, Minnesota takes on Dallas for the Wild’s first title defense since November 1 when they successfully defended the Conference III Belt against … Dallas. It’s Brunchrence III For The Belt. Let’s go to the Tale of the Tape:
Tale of the Tape:
|Dallas Stars||Minnesota Wild|
|Lindy “The Ruff Ryder” Ruff||Coach||Mike “Coach Wow” Yeo|
|Tyler “The Thirst” Seguin (22)||Points Leader||Zach “The Judgement” Parise (10)|
|Seguin (12)||Goals Leader||“El” Nino Niederreiter (7)|
|Kari “The Hellbeast from Helsinki” Lehtonen||Goaltender||Darcy “Mr Darcy” Kuemper|

|1||Title Belts Won||2|
|1-4 as Challenger, 0-1 as Champion||Record In Belt Matches||3-1 as Champion, 2-2 as Challenger|
It’s a 1 PM start for this one, an afternoon delight for the strap.
No matter today’s outcome, tomorrow will bring a defense. If Minnesota retains, they’ll head back to St. Paul for a 4 PM title match against Winnipeg. If Dallas manages to wrest it away, they’ll defend tomorrow against Chicago. If the winner of today’s game gets through the weekend with the Belt, we’ll see a rematch of this one for the title (it would be the third time in the month of November) the day after Thanksgiving. Go figure.
