Exactly two weeks ago, the Wild waltzed into Washington as the top team in the Western Conference for a best-on-best battle against the East-leading Capitals.
The Wild looks for its fourth win in 15 games this month tonight against the best team in the NHL, Washington, coming to the X.

With the team 3-10-1 in the month of March, the Wild plans to recall its prized prospect for the stretch.
Here's a breakdown of Wild players who have had trouble lighting the lamp of late:
The Wild's regression continues with a 3-10-1 record in March, including 10 losses in the past 12 games (2-9-1).

The Wild coach was not too happy, nor were the fans, during a 4-2 loss to Vancouver.
Burnsville's Brock Boeser signed his contract with Vancouver after North Dakota lost to Boston University in the NCAA West Regional on Friday. Boeser scored the winning goal for the Canucks.
