The Wild are 7-1-2 in their last 10 games with those shootout losses both looming, but they'll no doubt look to get back on track while facing the Canucks in Vancouver. Hockey Wilderness's Bryan Reynolds broke down what the week looks like for Minnesota's top team as of Monday morning.

Yet another ridiculous trip west gives us three games with late start times. Tonight against the Canucks, tomorrow against the Flames, and Thursday against the Oilers. Just what everyone wanted, another trip through Alberta. How fun.

With the roster set the way it is, how these games play out is anyone's guess. Jed Ortmeyer is up along with Chad Rau, and maybe Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Mikko Koivu find their way back into the lineup. Without the leaders of the team, any points gained are bonuses, yet Wild fans, and the players, expect victories. If they want them on this trip, role players and fill ins are going to need to step up and find ways to win.

Otherwise, we'll face a week of being told how much the Wild have regressed, all while the Aeros make up the roster. Whatever works.

The season series is split, for what it's worth, as the Wild defeated the Canucks 5-1 in their last meeting while Vancouver came out on top 3-2 in the first match-up of the season between the two teams.
