Let’s go over some news and notes:

- The Wild are officially inside the playoff bubble, and Marcus Foligno is sharing his experiences from Edmonton. [The Athletic]

- As they should, the Wild are planning to treat their exhibition contest against the Avalanche like a meaningful hockey game. [Pioneer Press]

- If the Wild want to take down the Canucks, they better hope Mikko Koivu delivers defensively. [Zone Coverage]

Off the trail...

- Hockey is officially back! Several teams played exhibition games yesterday, including the Flyers as they took down the Penguins. [Broad Street Hockey]

- The Maple Leafs and Canadiens also faced off, and Toronto beat the Habs as the road team in their own arena. [Pension Plan Puppets]

- Last but not least, the Battle of Alberta. And it should come as no surprise that Connor McDavid is still very, very good.
