Continued: Reusse: Owner Leipold hopes Wild keeps battling like beloved dog

That Fourth of July was on Wednesday. I said to Leipold: “Traditionally, your timing couldn’t have been worse. Everyone who could afford a season-ticket down payment was on a five-day weekend ‘at the lake.’ ’’

Leipold laughed again and said, “I’ve heard stories about people sitting on the cabin porch, and all of a sudden they hear someone screaming with joy, and the message travels across the lake, ‘The Wild signed BOTH Parise and Suter.’ ’’

It’s two years later, and Leipold’s team has won a playoff series, and the interest level is epic, and if Wild players continue to #battlelikestanley, who knows how long this hockey spring can last?

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
