The Minnesota Wild made it official last night. They beat the Chicago Blackhawks on the road 2-1, sealing one of the eight spots in the Western Conference Playoff. Jason Zucker played in his first game since February 9th and made it count, scoring a goal.

This whole season has been a long, strange ride for the Wild. They have been written off, the toast of the NHL, made everyone in Minnesota briefly panic and have one of the best stories of the season in Devan Dubnyk. When it is all said and done though, the Wild got it done, largely on the back of both Dubnyk and incredible play on the road. The next two games against the St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators are still important though. The Wild are currently in the top Wild Card spot but could slip to number 2, which would force a match up with the top-seeded Anaheim Ducks.

Since this is a happy occasion, I thought we should look back at the best moments in the brief postseason history of the Minnesota Wild.
