      Governor Dayton & Commissioner Cassellius sport their MN Wild jerseys in support of the Minnesota Wild advancing in the NHL Playoffs

      Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed today “Go Wild! Day” in Minnesota to rally fans as they Minnesota Wild return to the Xcel Energy Center to take on the Colorado Avalanche in Game 3 of the NHL Playoffs.

      “As Minnesotans, we are proud to live in the great State of Hockey. The Wild had two tough games in Colorado. Now they’re playing two games in Minnesota, where they can even up the series.” said Governor Dayton.
      To show their support for the Wild, the Governor, who was an All-State high school goalie, and Department of Education Commissioner Cassellius, who still moonlights as a forward for the Penalty Box Hockey Team, wore their jerseys to the Capitol today.
