St. Louis, MO) -- The Wild look to end an eight-game skid tonight as they face the St. Louis Blues in the second game of a home-and-home set. Minnesota is coming off a 6-3 loss to the Blues on Saturday.
The streak has put the Wild 10 points out of the number-eight spot in the Western Conference playoff race. The last time Minnesota saw a 'W' was back on March 8th in a 5-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. St. Louis has won three straight coming into the matchup. Next up for the Wild is a home date Thursday with the Edmonton Oilers.
Warroad's T.J. Oshie may not be on the ice tonight for the Blues when they host the Minnesota Wild. The 24-year-old forward was a no-show at yesterday's morning skate and head coach Davis Payne told the "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" that it was an unexcused absence. Payne said he would meet with Blues general manager Doug Armstrong to discuss the matter and determine what, if any, disciplinary action would be taken.
Oshie played high school hockey for Warroad and college at North Dakota.
