The Minnesota Wild will host the Detroit Red Wings for the second time this season on Saturday night.

The Minnesota Wild are looking to gain some ground in Northwest Division. They're currently only three points in back of the leaders, Edmonton and Colorado, but definitely need to start winning some more games. They have yet to win two consecutive games this season, and although seven of their nine games have been decided by only one goal, only three of them have ended up in the win column. Their only win by more than two goals came against the worst team in the NHL, the Columbus Blue Jackets.

On Saturday, the Wild will host the Detroit Red Wings for the second time this season. Their first meeting, two weeks ago, ended in a 3-2 OT loss. The Red Wings, as usual, are a solid team this year. This could be a very big win for the Wild if they can pull off the upset, and it's a chance to pick up some points early in the season.

The game will start at 7:00 PM on Saturday and will be televised on FS-N. This is the last Wild game of October. You can find the full 2011-2012 Wild schedule here.
