It's crunch time for the New York Islanders as the Minnesota Wild come to town. One more win this season would basically clinch a playoff spot as they could lose every game from there on out and still have greater than a 50 percent chance of making the playoffs.

The Wild are in a dicier but still favorable situation. Fortunately they have a great former Islander to help lead them along the way in Jared Spurgeon. Nino Niederreiter and Thomas Vanek will also be headed to town to face their former employers.

Calvin de Haan will return to the lineup tonight while Matt Donovan goes back to some unseen dungeon that nobody outside of the Islanders organization is aware of. Michael Grabner is also being held captive in that lair while all other lineup decisions remain the same and Jaroslav Halak is in net.
