Notes
  • The Wild are in 11th place in the West with nine games to play, and two points behind Anaheim and Nashville for the eighth and final playoff spot.
  • Minnesota is averaging 2.0 goals in its last 11 road games.
  • This is Minnesota's first visit to Long Island since Dec. 13, 2005.
  • Cal Clutterbuck is two hits from breaking the NHL record for hits in a season.
Questions to Answer
  1. Does Gaborik continue to build on a solid second game?
  2. Can the Wild offense get on a roll against a weak Islander team?
  3. After last night's physical beat-down, does John Scott get in the game to give them some size?
  4. Will the Islanders fare better against the Wild than last time, with 9 new faces?
  5. Will Cal break the record?
