It’s a 7:30 PM start for this one, so Jim Nill can have an extra half hour to find a defense.

For what has been a bit of a disappointing season for the Wild overall, they’ve had great success in Belt defenses and therefore in Conference III games. If that success continues tonight, they’ll defend again tomorrow against St. Louis. If Dallas is able to wrest the Belt away, tomorrow’s game against Colorado is a Belt/Poophat double.
