The Wild enter Tuesday’s contest with a five-game winning streak that has them three points up on the Colorado Avalanche in the race for the eighth-seed in the Western Conference. They have taken the first four meetings with the Blackhawks this season, including a 3-2 shootout victory in Chicago that served as the second win during their current streak.

The Hawks have already clinched a playoff spot with their 95 points and have won back-to-back games themselves. Chicago has performed erratically of late and has gone just 5-7 SU in the month of March.
