Minnesota Wild v Vancouver Canucks

Columbus @ Minnesota – 2 p.m. ET

Columbus’ starter: As the Jackets look to play spoilers this year, Mathieu Garon likely gets the call today to try and put perhaps the final dagger in the Wild’s hopes for the postseason. (Source)

Minnesota’s starter: It’s a desperation game for the Wild and Niklas Backstrom gets the call in goal. A loss today for Minnesota is a crucial blow to their fading chances of the playoffs. Backstrom’s their best and if he can’t get it done, then hope is lost. (Source)
