After playing every-other-day so far in their first round playoff series, the Wild have the luxury of an extra day off at home between Tuesday’s Game 5 loss in Dallas and Friday’s must-win Game 6 in St. Paul.

Upon arriving back in Minnesota Wednesday afternoon, head coach Dean Evason addressed the state-of-the-series as his Wild face a do-or-die situation Friday night.

A win Friday forces Game 7 back in Dallas on Sunday. A loss ends the Wild’s season after they held a 2-1 lead in the series, and had Game 4 at home.

Friday night is a 7:00 p.m. faceoff at the Xcel Energy Center
