Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Chad Graff of the Pioneer Press,
As Minnesota Wild players filed into the visiting locker room at United Center, they walked to the same stalls they occupied in Games 1 and 2 out of habit.
But it quickly became apparent they were in the wrong spot, pads and nameplates serving as evidence.
After losing the first two games of their second-round series on the Chicago Blackhawks' home ice, the Wild switched things up before Game 5 in Chicago, hoping a different routine might yield different results.
The team stayed at a different hotel, occupied different locker stalls, went through a few different drills at the team's morning skate and left for the rink at a different time -- if only by a few minutes.
Some habits die hard, though.
