Sputtering Wild look to secure playoff berth vs. Canucks

SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- Despite finding themselves on divergent postseason paths in the season's final weeks, the playoff-bound Minnesota Wild and homeward-bound Vancouver Canucks are trending nearly identically as they head into a Saturday afternoon tilt.

Something's got to give in the rubber match between the two teams who split a pair of games in Vancouver earlier in the season.

The Wild (44-23-6), who are one win away from clinching a fifth straight playoff berth, enter the matinee matchup with just two victories in their last 10 games (2-8-0) while the Canucks (29-35-9) are just 3-5-2 over the same stretch.
