I don't specifically know why, but I am really looking forward to this game. Maybe because one really doesn't know what kind of lines are going to be put into action.
Of course what the lines are at the beginning of the game and what they are in the third period are rarely the same and it does give the festivites an added layer of "intrigue"
The Wild will be a different kind of test than the Oilers. They are not as good a team as Edmonton, but they do have much superior goaltending. Beating teams with good goaltenders is one of those good omens that hints at long playoff runs.
