Bruno Week will come to an end tonight when the Wild honors the NHL’s latest 1,000 Game Man. Brunette and his family will be presented with various gifts prior to the Wild game, and that will be followed by a couple of video tributes to the Wild winger. His brother, Jamie, will then perform the “Let’s Play Hockey” declaration with Brunette’s dog, Simon.
Wild.com fans might remember Simon, who was featured on the site last year.
Matt Cullen and Jared Spurgeon will both return to the lineup to face the Avalanche, who will not have Peter Forsberg in the lineup. Forsberg, who signed last week, is not even with the team as he awaits some finalization of his visa issues.
The first 3,500 fans at tonight’s game will also get Puck #6 in the Top Ten Moments series, which depicts Pierre-Marc Bouchard’s spin-o-rama goal against Chicago in the shootout.
That’s all for now.
