Months ago, Pre pandemic schedule change and injury/losing streak, I looked at the final game vs the Av's at a battle for 1st place.
But then the Av's started playing out of their minds and it's a mute point now. 😏
So now this game becomes the most important one of the final stretch in our quest for Home Ice.
Without it, I think the Wild don't get out of RD 1 which  would  be a shame.
Wild Win...5-4

I had one of those dreams right before waking up where I heard like NHL Tonight say Kaprisov scored 4 goals. 😁

One nice thing is there's no travel in our 2 back to backs remaining.

Wild win 3:2 in OT if our team will stay out of penalty box. Blues have too good stats in PP and PK. We should focus more on production on 5 on 5 play and to focus on avoiding penalties, because that could be our strongest part during a playoffs season. PP for us was traditionally not too good part of our game as well our PK.  Recent example was our game against Predators when they placed in our net 3-4 PP goals during our loss 2:6.

I am hoping the Wild have not been showing the Blues their playoff game and will have something more effective when the playoffs start. 

I think we should be mentally prepared to win every game without hiding anything.

It seems Husso is a pretty good goalie. 

Yes, but 5 passes to each other outside of the circle and a TO will not get it done.  Spread out and keep it simple and quit throwing errant 'no look' passes
