ST. PAUL, Minn. Cal Clutterbuck has played 344 games in his six-year career for the Minnesota Wild, one of the last remaining players from the 2007-08 team that advanced to the playoffs.
Clutterbuck, then a rookie who played in just two games, didn't get to play in Minnesota's last playoff appearance in 2007-08 and has never had the chance to feel the playoff atmosphere...
No penalty of the play and Pominville has not returned to the game.

I was watching TV in between hockey games this weekend and I came across the disaster film 2012. The film gives you the unbelieveable tale of the Mayan Prophecy coming true and the Earth hits its own 'reset' button as a combination of Earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunami devastate the planet.
