WINNIPEG - The Minnesota Wild missed an opportunity to clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, losing 5-1 to the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre on Sunday.
A win would have put Minnesota in the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season because the Colorado Avalanche lost 5-1 to the St. Louis Blues. The Wild remain five points ahead of the Avalanche for the second wild card from the Western Conference, with Colorado having one game in hand.
