The Wild are back in action tonight against the lowly Islanders on the road.

This is a must win game for the Wild as the teams they are chasing for the playoffs continue to earn points. Currently Minnesota is sitting in the 9th spot in the West, and while it's no time to panic after a loss on Monday, the Wild can not afford to blow chances to earn two points against one of the NHL's worst.

A better effort out of the gates tonight can go a long way to assuring us of victory.
