Minnesota Wild vs Dallas Stars


Minnesota Wild vs Dallas Stars
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for March 6, 2022

My buddy Orlando came over Saturday morning for one of our adventures.  Don't let the smile fool you.  He's a bit devious.

We did pass by a bunch of Trumpeter Swans so we had that going for us.  Which was nice.

We also spied a couple of bald eagles.  Although they might have been spying us.  Not sure.

Saturday night brought us to the Korkowski house for a family game night.  The first game was called "Who can eat the most Special K Bars?"  Pretty sure I won that one.

 We played several new and interesting games.  Some I really liked and others that made me kind of feisty.  We all get a bit competitive in these situations which can yield some interesting evenings together.

  Luke & I went to Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on Sunday to watch some hockey!

The Dallas Stars were in town.  They used to be the Minnesota North Stars many years ago before until an evil owner moved them away and dropped the North out of them.  It's been a fun rivalry ever since.

We had pretty good seats and the opportunity to get a close-up view of the home team playing offense in the first and third period.

The Wild started the game pretty strong culminating in the first goal by Nico Sturm.  We thought they were in good shape at that point.

Unfortunately, Dallas came back and scored the next four goals including two by Jason Robertson who would eventually get a hat trick.  I wish I could do tricks with hats.

The home team made it thrilling in the third period, pulled their goalie, and scored two more goals to make the score 4-3.  However the Stars prevailed in the end and eventually made them pay for not having a goalie.  They won the game  6-3.   We still had a good time, even though the home team lost.
