The Wild can lock up the seventh seed and top wild-card spot in the Western Conference tonight with a win against the best team in the East, the Boston Bruins. Minnesota needs a single point to lock up a playoff berth (shootout or overtime loss), but a ‘W’ will ensure the seventh spot regardless of any other outcome around the National Hockey League.

The Minnesota Wild’s four-game road trip has gone by in a breeze, tonight concluding in the Windy City. The Wild closes out its season series against a banged up Chicago Blackhawks squad. After last year’s first round exit to the hands of the Hawks, the Wild has owned Chicago this season, going 3-1-0 against the defending Stanley Cup champions.

After a long day of travel yesterday, the Minnesota Wild was back on the ice at the Chicago Blackhawks’ practice facility, Johnny’s Icehouse, just down the road from the United Center, and was met by a friendly face.

When Jonathon Blum started playing hockey, it wasn’t on the ice with a pair of skates like many of his more northern counterparts. The Long Beach, Cal., native started playing in tennis shoes on the cul-de-sac in front of his house with a ball, using the gutters as goals.

It’s not a do-or-die game for the Minnesota Wild, but after consecutive losses, it sure does feel that way. Currently holding the first Wild Card and seventh spot in the Western Conference, Minnesota is one point ahead of tonight’s opponent, the Phoenix Coyotes.

As the Minnesota Wild closes out its three-game road trip, the big story line is Zach Parise’s return to New Jersey to face his former team, the Devils. Wild.com ran a feature on Parise’s return including a WildTV video, here, so we won’t get into it in the Lighthouse. However, WildTV will post the video from Parise’s media scrum, which was thicker than New Jersey Turnpike traffic.

Two former New York Islanders, now wearing Minnesota Wild sweaters, will return to Long Island tonight. Forwards Matt Moulson and Nino Niederreiter had very different experiences with the Isles, but each will visit Nassau Coliseum for the first time since being traded.

For the first time in a long, long time, the Lighthouse took a stroll outside on its way to Xcel Energy Center for the Minnesota Wild’s morning skate. Yes, it seems spring is finally in the air (fingers crossed) and the Wild looks to warm up from its recent cold stretch, tonight hosting the New York Rangers.
