ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A victory for the Minnesota Wild against the San Jose Sharks at Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday would clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the fourth consecutive season.
The Wild also can get in if the Colorado Avalanche lose to the Nashville Predators in regulation. Any combination of the Wild gaining two points or the Avalanche losing two points in the final week of the regular season will clinch Minnesota a berth in the playoffs.
