Tonight the Wild get a little bump in their odds with a win and a take a big hit if they lose. They also benefit from an Edmonton Oilers win over the Los Angeles Kings, a Philadelphia Flyers win over the Calgary Flames (who will be without Mark Giordano for the rest of the season), a Vancouver Canucks win over the San Jose Sharks, and a New York Islanders win over the Dallas Stars.

A Canucks win over the Sharks is just about the Canucks being in playoff position already and another Sharks loss would go a long way toward burying them too far back to make up ground and steal a wild card spot. An Islanders win over the Stars is a marginal bump for the Wild since the Stars are basically out of the race already. Their odds are down to 2.727%, which the team clearly understands, as evidenced by them shipping out top six winger Erik Cole to the Detroit Red Wings at yesterday’s trade deadline.

Here’s what the odds look like for the Western Conference.

Let’s touch on the Eastern Conference quick too. The Ottawa Senators are up 9.875% over the last two weeks, the most of any Eastern Conference team. Once a team counted out — remember they fired coach Paul MacLean earlier in the season — they’ve been on a tear lately even without the services of Robin Lehner and Craig Anderson in net. Here’s a look at what the Eastern Conference playoff picture looks like as of today.
