NOTES:

  • The Wild haven't won since losing to the Red Wings on February 12.
    Detroit is 10-0-2 in 10 meetings with Minnesota since a 4-2 home loss on Jan. 3, 2006.
  • Andrew Brunette, owner of the longest playing streak in the NHL, is a game-time decision.

Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Wild get more than one shot in a period tonight?
    Does Mike Greenlay make anyone else want to shove pencils through their eardrums?
    Will anyone provide a spark, the way Olvecky, Gillies, Sheppard, Fritsche and Olvecky did in the second period against Calgary?
    Can the Wild keep Detroit under 5?
    Has Lemaire lost the team?
