While their first-round playoff opponent is set there’s still home ice advantage to be determined as the Minnesota Wild play the final two games of the regular season.

They’re locked into a playoff matchup with St Louis, but the teams are tied in points. Whichever team finishes in front will earn home-ice for the playoff series which will begin early next week.
