After two straight games ending near or after midnight in the Central time zone, Minnesota Wild fans can look forward to watching their team play a game while it’s still light outside.

The NHL has announced Thursday’s Game 3 of the Wild vs. Vancouver Canucks series will drop the puck at 1:30 p.m. Central from the Western Conference bubble at Rogers Place in Edmonton. The game will be televised locally on Fox Sports North and broadcast via radio on KFAN-FM 100.3.

Should the Wild win Game 2 against Vancouver, Game 3 on Thursday would represent an opportunity to sweep their former division rival and move on to the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Times for potential Games 4 and 5 (if necessary) are still yet to be announced. Hockey Wilderness will have all the updates as released by the NHL.
