Vancouver Canucks vs. Minnesota Wild TV Listings, Playoff Odds, & More


Sorry for not getting you a Pre-Game Skate before the last game, but I’m on vacation and not getting these up as regularly until I’m back. Tonight, I’ll be missing the Wild game in favor of catching the Avalanche vs. Coyotes live in Denver. We’ll have someone on the @FSGonePuckWild twitter talking up the Wild game tonight though, so watch for us there.

Minnesota Wild Playoff Odds
Sports Club Stats is down, so we’re moving over to using Micah Blake McCurdy’s numbers. Here are today’s updated playoff odds:

Wild are up to 56.1% odds and the San Jose Sharks are taking a nose dive.

Tonight, aside from the Wild, fans should be cheering for the Edmonton Oilers over the Winnipeg Jets, the Arizona Coyotes over the Colorado Avalanche, the Boston Bruins over the Calgary Flames, and the Tampa Bay Lightning over the Los Angeles Kings.

A Colorado loss could be a huge hit to Colorado and might get them down to the point of being irrelevant in the playoff picture (somewhat dependent on who else wins tonight). As it stands, Colorado is eight points out of the final wild card spot and they’ve played one more game than Minnesota and Los Angeles, who stand between them and a wild card spot. Eight points is close to insurmountable at this point in the season. Should that be a ten point gap by the end of tonight, it might be the end of even outside playoff hopes for the Avalanche.
