    The Minnesota Wild are hosting the Seattle Kraken tonight in what could be a first-round matchup, if the Wild end up being crowned division champs.

    Wild vs. Kraken

    When: 7:00 p.m. CT
    Where: Xcel Energy Center
    TV: ESPN+, Hulu
    Radio: KFAN 100.3

    Projected Wild lineup

    Marcus Foligno — Ryan Hartman — Mats Zuccarello
    Marcus Johansson — Joel Eriksson Ek — Matt Boldy
    Brandon Duhaime — Frederick Gaudreau — Oskar Sundqvist
    Mason Shaw — Connor Dewar — Ryan Reaves

    Jake Middleton — Jared Spurgeon
    Jonas Brodin — Matt Dumba
    Jon Merrill — Alex Goligoski

    Marc-Andre Fleury
    Filip Gustavsson

    Calen Addison is a healthy scratch once again (along with Sam Steel), but other than that the Wild’s lineup stays the same.

    Projected Kraken lineup

    Jared McCann — Matthew Baniers — Jordan Eberle
    Jaden Schwartz — Alexander Wennberg — Morgan Geekie
    Eeli Tolvanen — Yanni Gourde — Oliver Bjorkstrand
    Brandon Tanev — Ryan Donato — Daniel Sprong

    Vince Dunn — Adam Larsson
    Jamie Oleksiak — William Borgen
    Carson Soucy — Justin Schultz

    Philipp Grubauer
    Martin Jones

    The only advantage the Wild have over the Kraken is general talent on the blue line, and certainly in net. If Minnesota keeps up the same defensive effort that it has displayed recently, then they can get the overall upper hand. As it stands though, the Kraken have a whole lot of forward depth that not even a lot of teams around the league can compete with.
