The Minnesota Wild face the Colorado Avalanche tonight at 6:00 CT on home ice at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, after dropping the opening two games of the NHL playoff series in Denver. No NHL team has comeback from a 3-0 deficit since 1975, making tonight’s matchup a ‘must-win’ for Minnesota.

Colorado won game-one last Thursday 5-4 in overtime, and game-two 4-2 on Saturday. The Wild have not won a playoff series in eleven years.

Tonight Minnesota will be without defenseman Keith Ballard (groin) and goaltender Josh Harding (illness). Forward Jason Zucker (quad), goaltender Niklas Backstrom (abdominal) are out for the season.

The game can be heard in St. Cloud on 1390 The Fan, and seen of Fox Sports North.
