It’s a 7 PM start in St. Paul for the teams with the two best Belt match records. Minnesota played a thriller against Dallas last night— one of the best Belt games ever — and St. Louis also played an OT game, so the fatigue factor ought to effect the teams equally.
Chicago becomes the No. 1 contender no matter the outcome tonight. If Minnesota retains, the Wild will defend against the the Hawks Dec. 16. If St. Louis wins, the Blues take on the Hawks for the strap Dec. 3.
Also tonight: Colorado tries to shove the Poophat onto Dallas’ head.
