Listen: Minnesota, Oilers And Portland discussed on 24 Hour News
"You until eight o'clock, then it's the weekly wolves cast, then the pre-game show with John Fogerty and then tip off from the Pacific northwest, Alan Horton, with the words, I view Minnesota and Portland big game in that NBA Western Conference race. And it's a scrum. I love it finally a little parody in the NBA. I mean, it's a very predictable league. I think we all know that. And at the end of the day when you boil it all down, Golden State will probably three Pete. But for now in the west, we have some legitimate NHL slash MLB slash NFL type parody your number one seed, Denver and your number fourteen seed, Houston and everybody in between separated by six games. A little basketball gridlock. The only team not in the chase Phoenix. So a lot of folks in the mix meanwhile in the east, it's not quite so tight the top seed is Toronto and your number eight seed right now Orlando already eight and a half games off the Mark. So but the west is is bunched up, so it's a big one tonight for the timber wolves against the trailblazers in Portland, by the way. Minnesota wild or off tonight. They've limp back home. Things were not good in western Canada. Now, they did get a win in Vancouver. But they were shut out Thursday night by Calgary to nothing. Mike Smith stopped thirty one shots to get his second shutout of the season number thirty eight in his career Elias Lindholm had both goals for the flames. And then last night about this Edmonton gets a touchdown. The Oilers seven Minnesota to Leandre subtle scored twice for the Oilers Connor mcdavid the young finorm had a goal and three assists Cam Talbot. Thirty one saves Edmonton has now won five of six about the coaching change out there. In Alberta, Ken Hitchcock came in for Todd McLellan and they are playing some solid hockey the Oilers six to one since Hitchcock took over the wild. Meanwhile, have lost five of their last six games in Devon next. Got to snap out of this funk. He was replaced last night by Alex Taylor during the game. They're going to need to play much better the wild. If they're going to try to hang around in the Western Conference playoff chasing, the NHL next up for Minnesota. Montreal Canadians habitats make their only appearance in Saint Paul this season. That'll be on Tuesday night, the Canadians thirty three points. Minnesota thirty two on the season. When we come back. We'll go over the NFL schedule for tomorrow and Monday and also talk a little baseball some Newsweek and drop in about MLB. It's seven thirty four here on C CO.
