The Minnesota Wild's continued pursuit of a playoff spot in the Western Conference will be televised nationally on Tuesday night.
Minnesota, which trails No. 8 Los Angeles by just two points, will host the Colorado Avalanche at the Xcel Energy Center. Game time is slated for 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.
Canadian fans will also be treated to an "Original Six" matchup, as RDS will broadcast the showdown featuring the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens from the Bell Centre. That game begins at 7:30 p.m. ET. The Bruins hold a five-point lead on the Habs in the Northeast Division.
