Playoff Odds
Tuesday’s loss to the Edmonton Oilers hurt the team’s odds quite a bit. The Wild didn’t get any help from the geriatrics in New Jersey last night, as they took a 3-1 loss to the Calgary Flames, dropping the Wild’s playoff odds 1.7% to 54% overall, according to Sports Club Stats.

More from Wild News

We’ve got a lot of games that effect the Wild’s playoff odds happening tonight. Most importantly, the game they control. They get a 9.2% bump from a win and a 6.9% drop if they lose in regulation.

Wild fans should also be cheering for a St. Louis Blues win over the Winnipeg Jets, a Detroit Red Wings win over the San Jose Sharks, an Ottawa Senators win over the Los Angeles Kings (not that outlandish, they beat the Ducks 3-0 last night and looked pretty solid doing it), a Buffalo Sabres win over the Vancouver Canucks (I have no words of encouragement on this one), and a Florida Panthers win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

They’re going to be in and out of wild card spots for a while if they’re able to keep winning, so this back and forth and high percentage swings thing isn’t likely to end any time soon.
