The Wild are tied with Colorado at 74 points and with a game in hand they currently own the last wildcard spot. So we know they are playing for their playoff lives. Meanwhhile the Sens are all but done, and are playing for pride and contracts (Hoffman, Chiasson, Puempel, Dzingel, Gomez, Wiercioch, Ceci, Kostka, McCormick, Dziurzynski are all on expiring contracts; there are quite a few more down in Bingo but I just listed the ones who've seen NHL ice time this year). You could also argue that Murray and the coaching staff are on the hot seat as well (not that Murray cares about his next contract).
As for the fans, well, the draft lottery should take place April 16 -- first Saturday following the end of the regular season.
GO BALLS GO!!!?
