Avs visit Wild with both needing to get rolling

Minnesota and Colorado have developed a rivalry through a trio of tough playoff series dating back to 2003. Two Game 7s -- both won by the Wild on the road -- and a six-game series mixed in the middle have amped up the animosity between the teams.

So it seems only fitting they are playing Tuesday night in St. Paul, Minn., with a lot at stake. The Wild, coming off of a 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday night, are right behind Arizona for the second wild card and three points ahead of the Avalanche.

A regulation win by Minnesota could deliver a serious blow to Colorado's chances of returning to the postseason. With 10 games left, the Avalanche (31-29-12) have 74 points and need every one they can get down the stretch.
