The Minnesota Wild have not won a game since Nov. 7. While the schedule has been light, they have gone a miserable 0-3-2 since that victory and now they get to host one of the best teams in the league, the Colorado Avalanche.
If you wanted to come up with the opposite of what the Wild are currently experiencing, it would be the Avalanche. In their last five games, they have gone 4-1-0 and have outscored their opponents 27-12 during that timespan. A very good run of play that is showing Colorado's supercharged offense.
We hate to say it, or even make any predictions in this gamethread, but this might not be great to watch. Let's just bury our head in some leftover turkey.
