Starting with Minnesota’s 5-3 loss to Chicago on Dec. 16, the Wild have been in a free fall with just two wins in their last 12 games. Even with a little more than half the Wild’s schedule left, they’re in serious danger of falling out of the playoff race entirely if they fail to stop the bleeding soon. Corey Crawford is expected to start for Chicago after stealing two points in the Blackhawks’ game against Minnesota on Thursday.
Minnesota and Chicago will play tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET. The game will air on NBCSN and can also be viewed online using NBC Sports’ Live Extra.
