Wild Vs. Bruins: Minnesota Hopes To Avoid Tying Record Home Losing Streak

The Minnesota Wild will host the Boston Bruins on Sunday afternoon. Both teams have been struggling as of late and the Wild are desperate for a home win.

To say that the Minnesota Wild have been struggling as of late is putting it mildly. They've fallen from first place to fourth place in the Northwest division in what seems like the blink of an eye. To top it all off, it seems as though the Wild can't even buy a win at home. They're 0-5-2 over their last seven games at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. One more loss at home would tie the franchise record for the longest such drought.

The good news is that the visiting Boston Bruins never seem to have much success against Minnesota, as their all-time record facing the Wild is just 2-9-0. The Bruins enter the game atop the Northeast Division, but have also struggled as of late, with a 4-6-0 record over their last 10 games.

Sunday's game between the Bruins and the Wild starts at 3:30 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on NBC.
