Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Pioneer Press,
Here’s the upshot of an otherwise disappointing first-round loss: new rivalry, new hero and newfound respect for a couple of Wild players. There also should be the realization that a lot of work remains to be done. The team has to get bigger. The guys were worn to the nub by the end of Game 5.
At least the Wild have found a blood rival for next year. In a season filled with faceless opponents and emotionless games, the Ducks will be an exception.
The Ducks earned the right to become the team Minnesota loves to hate. People will circle their calendars for next season’s quack-ups at the Xcel Energy Center. It will be the biggest thing since Todd Bertuzzi was with the Vancouver Canucks.
