The Minnesota Wild have won 5 games in a row and are now tied with 3 other teams with 32 points for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.  Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today.  He thinks the Wild can hang in there despite the injuries to Jared Spurgeon and Mikko Koivu and goaltender Devan Dubnyk not with the team.  Listen to the conversation below.

 

The Vikings will host Detroit Sunday.  Jim doesn't expect Adam Thielen (hamstring) to be available to play.

The Twins signed pitcher Michael Pineda to a 2-year contract extension worth $20 Million.  He thinks the move makes sense but also thinks the Twins are pursuing free agent left handed pitcher Madison Bumgarner.
