Minnesota's first man of hockey, Lou Nanne, was at the KSTP studios on Wednesday afternoon, so KSTP's Darren Wolfson sat down with him to review the Minnesota Wild's season and look ahead to free agency.
The Wild were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs Tuesday night after a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks at Xcel Energy Center. Minnesota took a step forward this season in making it to the Western Conference semifinals after losing to the Blackhawks in the opening round last season.
