Not that long ago, it was the St. Louis Blues who were in the thick of the Central Division title races while the Minnesota Wild were just fighting for a playoff spot. This season, it looks like those roles have been reversed.
The Wild are currently in a great spot to win the Central, but winning a game like this would only fatten their lead over Chicago.
The Blues haven’t been happy with their play lately, yet they did just shut out the Penguins and are currently in the West’s first wild card spot. They’re more accustomed to having a larger margin of error in late January, but they’re also not out of the mix, either.
With motivation on both sides, this should be an interesting one on NBCSN tonight.
