Wild fall to Avalanche

(St. Paul, MN) — The Minnesota Wild’s playoff hopes continue to get slimmer following a 5-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche at the Xcel Energy Center.

Declan Chisholm scored a goal in the second period to get Minnesota within one, but Colorado lit the lamp twice in the third to seal the game. Vinni Lettieri also had a goal for Minnesota. The Wild are in sixth place in the Central Division with 81 points and a 36-29-10 record.

They host the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon.
