For a franchise that hasn't had much to celebrate since a run to the Western Conference Finals in 2003 and a division title when it last made the playoffs in 2007-08, there is much to be excited about in Minnesota, given the way the Wild have been playing!
Minnesota has won five in a row at home for the first time since it took six straight in March of 2008, right before their last playoff appearance. The Wild has four games remaining on their current homestand.
The Wild have allowed only 17 goals in their 10 games at The X so far. There have been 39 goals in 20 games so far. The Wild's 1.95 team goals-against average is by far the best in the league, with the Rangers second at 2.12.
The Wild own a 12-3-2 record against the Western Conference.
