For the second straight season, the Minnesota Wild’s season ended with a loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the second round. After last season’s finale, the Wild allowed dedicated season ticket holders to paint the ice with fun, heartfelt messages to the team. The Wild repeated the gesture to season ticket holders after this year’s loss.
The Blackhawks have become enemy number one for the Minnesota faithful. This painting exercise might instill Chicago hatred in young Wild fans.
