Tonight the St. Louis Blues will take on the Minnesota Wild for the second time in as many weeks, and both teams will be looking to make a statement in what could be a first round playoff preview. The last time these two squads squared off, T.J. Oshie played the hero and came up with his first career hat trick.
Since then, the Wild have secured a playoff spot and has points in all six games since that loss to St. Louis on March 27. Ilya Bryzgalov has been a a coop for Minnesota down the stretch, as he’s stepped up in a big way with Darcy Kuemper, Niklas Backstrom and Josh Harding all on the shelf with injuries.
Somehow the team has found a way to get it done though, and they’ll be looking to avenge a 5-1 beatdown at the hands of the Blues this evening. Can St. Louis right their ship after dropping three straight games for the first time all season? Or will the Wild continue their winning ways with the playoffs just around the corner?
