Lets Go Boys!!! Punch your ticket!! This will not only be a big step forward over the past few seasons, but a big step forward for the next few as well. Good Luck!!

Seems like the motivation should be easy to come by at this point: win your last two, coupled with a San Jose loss in regulation at LA on Saturday (which seems likely, as San Jose is not a good road team), and you grab the #6 seed a face a team (Vancouver) that you match up much better against than if you were the #7 seed playing Anaheim.

Win these last 2 games and start the playoffs with confidence. Take care of business boys!

The Wild are all set to gag it away. Mark my words. Their only chance was a Columbus loss last night.

maybe its just me, but I'm not sure that Rupp's return, if he does, does much for me. Yes he is big. But the thought of Fontaine being called up was much more interesting to me. Maybe Rupp brings those intangibles - hopefully? Possibly a mid-ice collision with Hall, eh?

Except for one season, Wild has been a bust as an on ice product... that said (ref.- Caddy Shack) ... C'MON NOONAN!

Must See TV, back into the playoffs........and the coach keeps his job. This coach does not see that the Wild have choked down the stretch again. If we make the playoff one and done, it would be better to miss the playoffs and dump the coach.

Would love to see Brodz turn that "best game" experience he had in the LA game into some goal scoring the rest of the way out. Cannot have any passengers on this train from now on.

Who cares? If they make the playoffs they won't be there long. Bad hockey is bad hockey!
