“I answered them, too, as much as I possibly could. It was good to talk to a lot of people I hadn’t heard from in a long time,” Gardenhire said.

He received a text from Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington, he said, which impressed him. “I thought that was really cool, that he would think to do something like that,” Gardenhire said.

He didn’t receive a congratulatory message from President Obama, though, he joked, but that wasn’t a surprise. “Mr. Obama is a White Sox fan,” Gardenhire said with a laugh.

Etc.

• Lefthander Brian Duensing will perform the traditional “Let’s play hockey!” announcement before Tuesday’s Wild game in St. Paul, though the lefthander may have conflicted loyalties. That’s because Duensing gave his son, born last Monday, the name Boston Matthew. Minnesota’s opponent on Tuesday? The Boston Bruins.

“Amazing, huh?” Duensing said with a laugh. He’s got a goal for his performance on Tuesday, he said. “I’m going to try to sound Minnesotan,” the Nebraska native said. “I hope I don’t let anybody down. I’d probably get booed off the ice.”

• With Saturday’s game being broadcast by Fox Sports 1, how did FSN play-by-play man Dick Bremer spend his afternoon off? Listening to a webcast of Northwestern’s 6-2 loss to Illinois. “I don’t have an unbiased opinion, but I thought they did a very nice job,” he said of the Wildcats announcers — including his son, Erik, making his play-by-play debut.
