Game 67: New Jersey Devils @ Minnesota Wild

After dropping their first game to Colorado since the stone ages since the playoffs, Minnesota will host the New Jersey Devils and will try avoid consecutive losses for the first times since January 20th. The Wild looked tired and drained during Sundays loss and didn't score a goal until the closing minutes of the third period. So tonight, Yeolo will shake things up in hopes of more scoring chances.

Breaking: Wild Acquire F Chris Stewart

GMCF Strikes again, adding to the MN-BUFFALO connection Chuck Fletcher has struck again, landing another player who brings some extra toughness (and #gritz) to the Wild Lineup.  Chris Stewart is "excited that I'm going to get a chance to play in the playoffs," as he joins the Wild via the trade of a 2017 2nd round pick.  Stewart is also a pending UFA, so he is a rental for this season.
