Minnesota's destiny is out of its hands at this point.  Its all about what Colorado does or doesn't do.  The Blues have managed to edge the Wild the last few times they've played against one another and I'd like to see the team exercise that demon during this last two-game series.  But if they decide to rest up for the post-season I can see that happening as well.  Enjoy and discuss...

Who ever thought that having clinched playoffs spots the games would turn uninteresting. Probably me. But I was wrong! C&A's article points out why. Thanks for the North Stars - Bruins clip! I didn't even know that happened. The NHL has changed from those days, but man is still the same. So let's hope the team will have that mentality in these final games of the season.

I know how important to bring the right mentality to the playoffs season. But I also sincerely would like to collect 3 more goals for Kaprizov, because I want to see his 1st career season in NHL in finishing him with 30 goals.

Amazingly close to having a 3 team tie potential going into these last 2 games. Until the loss to VGK dashed that.
How fun would've that been having the scenarios change as each game was played right now.
We need to send a message that the Blues aren't the same version of how VGK looks at us...In our/their heads.

Kaprizov has an open net goal if he could of only corralled that pass better 

Seems like we've had a lot of If onlys over the years
