Conference III Championship Belt Tale of The Tape: Minnesota at Dallas, 28 November 2014
Tonight, for the third time in the month of November, Minnesota defends the Conference III Belt against Dallas. It’s Green Friday: Black Friday For The Belt. Let’s go to the Tale of the Tape:
|Dallas Stars||Minnesota Wild|
|Lindy “The Ruff Ryder” Ruff||Coach||Mike “Coach Wow” Yeo|
|Tyler “The Thirst” Seguin (28)||Points Leader||Zach “The Judgement” Parise (14)|
|Seguin (17)||Goals Leader||“El” Nino Niederreiter (10)|
|Kari “The Hellbeast from Helsinki” Lehtonen||Goaltender||Darcy “Mr Darcy” Kuemper|
|Antoine “Le Troll” Roussel||Threero||None (yet)|
|John “Knuckles” Klingberg||Rookie To Watch||N/A|
|1||Title Belts Won||2|
|1-5 as Challenger, 0-1 as Champion||Record In Belt Matches||5-1 as Champion, 2-2 as Challenger|
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.
