  • Gameday Thread: Wild at Avalanche (8 p.m.)


    Five-win streak versus four-win streak. 3rd-ranked PK vs 2nd-ranked PK. Each team with 86 goals for and 64 goals against. Two teams that couldn’t match up more evenly right now.

    Oh, except that the Colorado Avalanche will have top defenseman Cale Makar and second-pairing blueliner Bowen Byram back from injury, while the Wild will be missing Marcus Foligno due to injury and Carson Soucy due to suspension.

    And there’s the little thing about the power play (Avs ranked 13th at 23%, Wild ranked *cough* last at 8.1%), but let’s not focus on that.

    Let’s focus on tonight’s matchup between two teams that could very well meet in the first round in the playoffs in just a few short months!

    Talbot’s in the net for the Wild, per @Sarah_McLellan of the Star Tribune. Grubauer in net for the Avs per everyone everywhere.

    Wild at the rival Avalanche, 8 p.m. central from Bell Arena in Denver.
