The Minnesota Wild, in just their third year, had not only crashed the Western Conference playoffs, but Jacques Lemaire has somehow guided his team of mostly has-beens and thank-their-lucky-stars-for-expansion players past the favored Colorado Avalanche and Vancouver Canucks and into the Western Conference […] The post Wild Living on the Playoff Precipice, As Usual appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Wild at Sharks: Lines, game thread and where to watch

Nick Wosika-USA TODAY Sports The San Jose Sharks (29-33-4, 6th Pacific) take on the Minnesota Wild (33-26-7, 5th Central) in the third and final meeting between these two teams this season. The Sharks, while mathematically still in it, are out of the playoff picture. The Wild are right in the thick of it, just one point out of the first and second wild card spots. But you wouldn’t know that looking at the season series. The Sharks won the first two games by the scores of 6-5 and 2-0. If there’s a guy you want to watch out for on the Wild it’s Kevin Fiala.

Wild at Sharks Preview: There’s no place like home

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Sharks continue home stand and continue to play spoiler It’s been a lot of fun to watch the San Jose Sharks (29-33-4, 6th Pacific) of late. The team has won three in a row and now looks to make it four against the playoff desperate Minnesota Wild (33-26-7, 5th Central). The Wild are just outside of the wildcard race in the Western Conference, trailing both the Vancouver Canucks and the Winnipeg Jets by one point. Luckily for the Wild, they have two games in hand on the Jets, so they’re still very much in this thing. This is the third and final meeting...
