Watch Out For The Wild

from George Johnson at ESPN,

The rise of the Wild dovetails into superb performances from two men. Returning from a groin injury that cost him 34 games, Gaborik has been the consistent gamebuster everyone knows him to be. Teaming with Todd White and fellow Slovak Pavol Demitra, he’s excelled on the road, where he’s scored 18 of his 25 goals. Fans in St. Paul are likely wondering where the Wild would be if he hadn’t missed all that time, but, in the end, the extended stint on the sidelines might be beneficial. He’s fresh, frisky and on fire heading into the big dance, when it counts most.
“Having Gabby back in the lineup is huge, obviously,” Rolston said. “It gives teams more to think about in matchups. He makes our line better, and in turn, we make his line better. It took this team a while to learn how to win on the road. But we’ve gotten our act together.”
