Streak of the day

Streak of the day

Wednesday night, for the first time in its history, the Wild failed to sell out a home game. The Wild had sold out 409 consecutive games until 16,219 showed up to the 18,064-seat Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn., for a preseason game against the Blues. That streak is believed to be the third longest for sellouts in NHL history. It covered 369 regular-season games, 27 preseason contests and 13 playoff games during the team's nine seasons.

Movie of the day

Early reviews for the movie about Secretariat — titled, appropriately enough Secretariat are solid. The movie, about the 1973 Triple Crown winner and starring Diane Lane as owner Penny Chenery, opens Oct. 8. A select audience saw an advance screening this week in Louisville, Ky. Gary West of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram wrote, "No film ever could capture the bravura and the majesty of Secretariat. Still, Secretariat gets it right."
