Minnesota Wild Playoff Details

NHL Hockey returned to Minnesota in 2000, when the Wild joined the league as an expansion team. It didn’t take long for fans in the “State of Hockey” to see their team in the playoffs, either: the Wild reached the postseason in just their third season.

The Wild were the sixth seed in the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Wild won their first playoff game, but they lost the next three, and the highly-favored Colorado Avalanche took a 3-1 lead in the series. During their Game 4 loss, the Wild made a change in goal, switching out Dwayne Roloson for Manny Fernandez. Fernandez provided the Wild with the spark they needed. The Wild won the next three games, including dramatic overtime victories in Game 6 and Game 7. In round two, the Wild came back from a second 3-1 series deficit—this time over the Vancouver Canucks—and reached the Western Conference Final. Unfortunately, the Wild ran out of steam in the conference final. They lost the series in four games and only scored once on Mighty Ducks goalie J.S. Giguere.

Before the 2013 season, the Wild signed top free agents Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. After Parise and Suter joined the team, the Wild returned to the playoffs after a four-year absence. In 2015, the Wild reached the playoffs for the third season in a row, beginning the franchise’s first long streak of qualifying for the postseason.

NHL Playoff Format

The NHL is split into an Eastern Conference and a Western Conference. Both conferences are made up of two divisions. The Wild play in the Central Division of the Western Conference. The top three teams from each division automatically qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and then both conferences also send two wild card teams to the playoffs. That makes a total of 16 teams that qualify for the postseason.

There are four rounds in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The winner of each round is decided by a best-of-seven series. In the first two rounds of the playoffs, division rivals face one another; Round 3 is the Conference Final. Next comes the Stanley Cup Final to determine the NHL champion.

When do Wild playoff tickets go on sale?

The National Hockey League regular season begins in October and ends in April. If the Wild are on track to qualify for the playoffs, tickets likely go on sale in March.
