The Wild completed the round robin portion of the festivities in Traverse City yesterday by whupping Erik Johnson and his Blues cohorts 7-3. The wild.com story is here.
The Wild, BJs and Blues all finished with 2-1 records, and the Stars headed up the rear in the Western Conference of the tournament with a record of 0-3 (pity).
Two goals for Danny Irmen, and two more helpers by - you guessed it - Cal Clutterbuck. James Sheppard, Tyler Hirsch, Benoit Pouliot, Ryan Hamilton and Carson McMillan scored the other goals.
With the round robin completed, there is a one-game playoff to determine who finishes in what position, with cross over between the two conferences. I have been looking, but I can't find who plays whom, for what, and when. But if/when I do I'll toss it up here as well.
**According to Russo, the Wild will play the Thrashers for third place today.
