The Wild dug down deep and pulled out a big win against the Los Angeles Kings last night!
Minnesota now sits in the final wild card spot with 81 points, just 1 more than the Avalanche. The battle for the final spot with Colorado is far from over. The Wild definitely have a chance to decide their fate. They will have to continue their winning streak and take advantage of their final games. Bringing in coach Torchetti has definitely revamped the Wild. His intensity has rubbed off on the players and they have been playing with much more energy and have turned things around.
What better way to gain experience than beating one of the better teams in the league. Devan Dubnyk was huge making 38 saves. This is the type of win that can give a team a boost of confidence and hopefully this will help propel the Wild to a playoff birth.
