When will we see Harding?

Chicago -

By now you should be stuffed to the gills with facts and quotes. So let's take a shot at a wild Wild prediction:

I see Josh Harding playing today. And if not today, then someday soon.

Mike Yeo has not said Harding will play. He probably doesn't want to put any more thoughts in Ilya Bryzgalov's overflowing cranium. But it is always instructive to judge people not by what they say but by what they do.

Here's what they did: Shipping Harding's equipment to him in Chicago and had him practice after not doing either of those things in Colorado.

In other words, Harding is capable of playing. If Bryzgalov is lousy again today, I don't know why the Wild wouldn't give Harding a shot today or in Game 3.

We'll have full game coverage and a post-game video with Michael Russo and myself after Game 2, so please check back on startribune.com. Also, I recommend picking up the actual newspapers these days. We have two excellent photographers and three writers covering Game 2.

I'll be on WJON in St. Cloud at 7:15 on Monday morning, and on 1500ESPN with Mackey and Judd at 12:15 after I land in the Twin Cities.
