Last season, the Minnesota Wild’s postseason hopes were flashed fried in a quick five games by the eventual Stanley Cup Champion, Chicago Blackhawks. If revenge is a dish best served cold, the Wild looks to turn the United Center into a meat locker in Game 1 against the Blackhawks tonight.

You only need to glance at their faces to know that Playoff season is over a week old.

Some players are sporting magnificent beards. Kyle Brodziak and Justin Fontaine look like they’ve soaked in all the vitamin manliness possible with full, thriving chin-whiskers. Others are trying their best. With wisps of faint hairs or scraggly patches here or there — it’s playoff beard season.

As Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo put it, it’s felt like a week since Game 3.

It’s only been two days, but it’s the first time this series the Wild has had a two-day break between games. Not only that, everyone has to patiently play the waiting game for tonight’s puck drop at 8:30 p.m.
