Five minutes for fighting


It’s ironic really that the Minnesota Wild 2011-12 calender is short a few months, ending after September. Hanging as the official calender of my office cubicle, I — like I am sure many fans who use the same calendar to track the days — was expecting to pick up a new 2012-13 calender during one of the three home pre-season games scheduled to start Sept. 25.

As of 12 a.m. on Sept. 16, that wasn’t going to happen.
