The Minnesota Wild are just 1 point back of Nashville for the last wildcard spot in the Western Conference.  The Wild host Nashville at 7 p.m. tonight, pregame on AM 1390-Granite City Sports at 6:45.  Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today.  He says the Wild won the trade that brought Kevin Fiala to Minnesota from Nashville.
