Wild Lock Up Playoffs

With a two-point result for a home and home series with the Detroit Red wings, the Wild just about have a playoff position all but locked up.  As you can see by the attached standings, they have a sizable lead with only ten more games left in the schedule.

The series against Detroit was a tough one.  After losing at home Saturday afternoon, it would have been easy to pack it in at Detroit and just go through the motions.  And that was especially true after playing well, but being down 2-0 after the first period.

But this team did not pack it in.  The big names produced, with Pominville, Coyle, and Parise scoring in regulation, and new acquisition Moulson making a beautiful re-direction to win it in overtime.

Despite giving up three goals, the Wild's defense was actually pretty good.  If they can keep up their offensive and defensive play, and get a little better goalie work, they could be a team to be reckoned with in the playoffs.
