Minnesota Wild Playoff Tickets

Minnesota Wild Playoff tickets

Minnesota Wild History

The Minnesota Wild were founded in 1997 and finally began playing in the 2000-2001 season, a long seventeen years after the Minnesota North Stars had abandoned the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for Dallas. Finally, Minnesota once again had a hockey team and fans came out in droves. The team lost their first game 3-1 to the Anaheim Ducks, but it did not take long for the franchise to establish itself as legitimate Stanley Cup contenders. During their second season the Wild made the playoffs and made what seemed like an improbable run to the Western Conference Finals. In the 2007-2008 season the Minnesota Wild won their first, and so far only, Division Championship and they continue to be one of the top teams in the Central Division of the NHL's Western Conference.

About the Team

The Minnesota Wild appear poised to make another playoff run, and this could just be the year that hey finally make it to the Stanley Cup Finals and win it all. Anchored in the back by all-star defenseman Ryan Suter the Wild should be a force to be reckoned with on their end of the ice and goals will not be easy to come by for the opposition. Their solid defense ranks fifth in the NHL, allowing just 2.1 goals per game, and defense is all-important in the NHL playoffs. On the other end captain center Mikko Koivu and this season's leading point man Jason Pominville should be able to provide enough firepower to light up the scoreboard, giving fans something to cheer for as well as putting pressure on their opponents' offense to come through. The playoffs are right around the corner and the Wild sit just behind Colorado, Chicago, and St. Louis in the Western Conference's Central Division standings. A strong push down the stretch could give the Wild a great seed in the playoffs and the all important home ice advantage that comes with it. Be sure to be there down the stretch and during the playoff run with tickets courtesy of StubHub.

The Experience

Hockey fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding the NHL playoffs and fans of the Minnesota Wild are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire NHL. On game day at Xcel Energy Center the fans file in and take their seats and that is when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock winds down closer and closer to the dropping of the puck the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for face off and the excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, powerful slapshots, and tremendous saves set the arena on fire for the following three periods of world class college hockey. By the time the final buzzer sounds your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high fives and you will already be planning a return trip. Everything is ratcheted up a notch during the NHL playoffs and the further teams advance the more intense the competition becomes. If you thought regular season NHL games were exciting, just wait until you experience an NHL playoff game live and in person.

NHL Western Conference Central Division

The Central Division is currently made up of seven teams: the Chicago Blackhawks, the Colorado Avalanche, the Dallas Stars, the Minnesota Wild, the Nashville Predators, the St. Louis Blues, and the Winnipeg Jets. The conference is a perfect mix of some of the oldest and most storied franchises in the history of the sport in the Chicago Blackhawks and the St. Louis Blues, along with some of the newer teams who joined the NHL in the NHL's expansion between 1998 and 2000 including the Minnesota Wild, the Nashville Predators, and the Winnipeg Jets (who joined as the Atlanta Thrashers before moving to Winnipeg and taking the previous franchise's name). The Blackhawks have been the most successful team in the division of late, having won the Stanley Cup in 2010 and in 2013. Six Stanley Cup winners have come from the Central Division, two by the Chicago Blackhawks and four by the Detroit Redwings who are no longer in the division.


The Minnesota Wild currently have two retired numbers hanging from the rafters of Xcel Energy Center, but neither of them belong to former Wild players. One of the retired numbers is number 1, which has been retired in honor of Wild fans, and the other is 99 for the legendary Wayne Gretzky whose number was retired league wide in 2000. The Minnesota Wild currently has three minor league affiliates, the Iowa Wild, the Orlando Solar Bears, and the Quad City Mallards. The franchise's first win came in their sixth game, against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The official names of the team's colors are Forest Green, Iron Range Red, Harvest gold, Minnesota wheat, white.
