ESPN comments:

The Wild clinched their fifth consecutive postseason berth and eighth in franchise history on Saturday when the Kings lost to the Rangers. But Minnesota fell again on Sunday, its eighth loss in nine games. Will the Wild's slide serve as a wake-up call before the playoffs

The biggest risers of the week are the Anaheim Ducks and Edmonton Oilers, each climbing three spots. The biggest drops of the week belong to the San Jose Sharks and Boston Bruins, plunging five spots each.

The Wild host the Washington Capitals tonight (3/28) at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

Let's Go Wild!
