The Week in Sports
What can you say about the Wild? They're still battling Vancouver for the top spot in the Western Conference's Northwest division, they've succeeded despite what seems like an endless string of injuries to star players, and the Marian Gaborik specter will not leave, but they continue to win. Except ... against the Dallas Stars.The Wild saw a two-goal lead evaporate on Wednesday, and went down 4-3. But, they bounced back on Friday with a 4-2 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning and opened the floodgates Saturday with a 6-2 pounding of the Nashville Predators, tying their season scoring high.
The Timberwolves continued their Timberwolvey ways this week. They lost two of three, but did manage to notch a victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the startup franchise that's lone victory all season came against the Wolves. Minnesota managed to only beat the Thunder by a single bucket, 105-103, but a win's a win.
