The Wild and Blues are both headed to the playoffs. Minnesota has now reached the postseason for the eighth time in the last nine seasons. St. Louis is seeking to the win the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons. Both teams had early departures in last year’s playoffs.
Vegas (80 pts) currently sits atop the West Standings. Current No. 2 seed Colorado defeated the Golden Knights, 2-1, on Monday night with two games remaining (both vs LA) on its schedule. Vegas meets San Jose in its final regular season game on Wednesday. It’s still possible for Minnesota to finish as No. 2 seed. In order to do that, the Wild need to go 2-0-0 in their final two games and for Colorado to lose each of its final two games in regulation (0-2-0). St. Louis is locked into the fourth seed.
These clubs will meet twice over the next two days as both teams prepare for a playoff run. The Blues won four of the first six meetings, losing just once in regulation. In their last meeting on May 1, Minnesota earned a 4-3 overtime victory when forward Kevin Fiala scored the game winner.
