This might be the last gamethread of a Minnesota Wild game until the fall. The team we love, our stupid loveable boys, are heading into Game 6 with a 3-2 series deficit against the Dallas Stars. It's really up to how this game goes if their season goes on or crumbles to another first-round loss.
For this game, there are a couple questions in the lineup. Mats Zuccarello is dealing with something and he either just took the last couple days of practice off to heal up in time for this game, or is out tonight with an injury. The assumption is that if Zuccarello doesn't go in, Marcus Johansson will go in his place on the top line and then Oskar Sundqvist will come in to play with Frederick Gaudreau and Matt Boldy.
Honestly, thinking about those players playing where they are, it is kind of a miracle the Wild are in the playoffs to start with. Anyways, larger questions aside, it's do or die on this Friday night.

Kirill Kaprizov -- Ryan Hartman -- Mats Zuccarello(?)
