Two teams desperately fighting for a playoff spot in the ultra-competitive Western Conference will clash in front of a nationally-televised audience Tuesday night.
The Colorado Avalanche -- who currently sit just one point out of eighth place in the West, will host the Minnesota Wild at the Pepsi Center. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.
Minnesota (28-28-10) will be looking to avoid a three-game skid. The Wild trail eighth-place San Jose by seven points heading into Tuesday's action.
