Game Notes:

• The last time the Kings met the Wild they dominated the game but lost in shootout after they could only muster 1 goal. This was back in the dark days of January when they could buy a goal.

Ilya Bryzgalov has been playing great since coming over from Edmonton. He’s 3-0-2 with a .921 save percentage with Minnesota.

•Oh yeah and Matt Moulson is on the Wild now? How has he been? Well the wild have controlled 57% of all shot attempts when he’s been on ice at evens. That’s very, very good. He also has 4 goals and 4 assists in 13 games. So it looks like he’s been a great asset.

•Since acquiring Matt Moulson, the Wild have controlled 50.6% of all attempts at evens. Before Moulson: 48.6.

•If the Kings need to finish 6-1, 5-0-2 or 7-0, to break the all-time club record for points in a single season. They also need just 3 wins to break the all-time club wins record.

~Fun With Numbers~ from Extra Skater. Basically if the Kings can stop themselves from taking penalties and if they can get the puck past the Wild goaltender more than once this time around, they should be able to walk away with 2 points.

•Prediction: Kings win 1-0 in OT after having 6 goals disallowed.
