The Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche are in Denver for game seven in their Western Conference quarterfinal playoff. The Wild forced the situation after a 5-2 victory Monday at the X.
Face off tonight is 8:30 with the winner moving on to face the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

There are two other game sevens tonight.

Philadelphia is in New York against the Rangers, hoping to keep the momentum of last night's 5-2 victory.  The Flyers have only won once in its last 11 meetings at the Garden. Also, the Los Angeles Kings will attempt to rally from a 3-0 series deficit when they visit San Jose to clash with the Sharks in the nightcap.
