It took 3 ½ months, but the Wild, winners of seven in a row and 17 out of 21 when it traveled to Winnipeg on Dec. 13, finally got back at the Jets for ruining this season!
The Jets, who sit 10th in the East, got to watch the Wild travel east and lose back-to-back games to the Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals – the two teams right in front of them in the standings.
The Jets are now six back.
Hey, payback can be painful sometimes.
The Wild’s now officially, mathematically, completely, utterly and absolutely … kaput.
