The Minnesota Wild need all the points they can get to eventually hit their goal of making the playoffs this season. Tonight, they are hosting the Calgary Flames, who just so happen to sit just two points above them, and Minnesota has so many games in hand.
Points are points, but points against the competition are even better. Unfortunately, the Wild are without both Jonas Brodin and Jared Spurgeon -- suddenly, Brock Faber is leading this blue line in what should be an extensive effort.
