Wild Playoff Chance (what to pray for Friday update)

Well Nashville rallied to upset the Red Wings last this means...

ANA (88, 41): (2) Fr v. DAL, Sa @PHX
STL (88, 39): (2) Fr CBJ, Su @COL
NSH (88, 40): (1) Fr @MIN
MIN (85, 38): (2) Fr NSH, Sa @CBJ

If the Wild win in regulation tonight they need EITHER of the following.

1) STL to get one point or fewer in their final two games OR
2) ANA to get zero points in their final two games

If the Wild win in overtime tonight (allowing NSH a point) they need BOTH of the above.

Coach Lemaire announced he plans to play for a regulation win tonight.

He plans to pull the goalie to play for a regulation win should the game be tied in the final moments of the 3rd. I wholeheartedly agree with taking fate in your own hands here. The Wild's playoff chances are slim if they beat Nashville in regulation tonight, their slim chance I estimate would be cut in half if Nashville gets a point.
