Big Night For The Wild

from Craig Custance of ESPN,

Monday night was a good night for the Minnesota Wild. Not only did they land the most sought-after college free agent in defenseman Christian Folin, they earned two huge points in Los Angeles with a 3-2 win over the streaking Kings.

Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov continued to prove his worth as a trade deadline addition with his fourth win with the Wild (4-0-2) and Matt Moulson, another deadline addition, tied the game with his third period goal.

The Wild are in the process of locking down one of the two Western Conference wild card spots, and while their first-round match-up won't be much of a reward -- likely the Blues, Ducks or Sharks -- the Wild proved again they can play with anyone when things are going well.
