NHL Overtime explains Wild’s winning ways

Dec 13, 2011, 12:03 AM EST

Perhaps it’s just me, but doesn’t it seem like this season’s “new car smell” is just about gone? We’re reaching the “daily grind” part of the campaign where the playoffs is too far away to really consider yet opening night is also fading in our rear-view mirrors. Perhaps that’s why surprise teams like Toronto are slipping noticeably while the Canucks of the world are moving on up.

Yet one shocking success story keeps chugging along, as the Minnesota Wild stand alone atop the NHL. It’s reasonable for normally reasonable people to ask: how and why? Jeremy Roenick and Kevin Weekes shared their reactions and Mike Yeo would be glad to know that the word “passive” wasn’t being thrown around

    this video shows that Roenick has no clue about the Wild LOL. Couldn’t remember Harding’s name and said Setoguchi is scoring goals. He hasn’t scored in a long time and is currently injured. At least Weekes pays attention :)

    Go Wild.
