AVALANCHE 3, WILD 1
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Philipp Grubauer made 36 saves to lift Colorado over the Wild in a game that had playoff implications in Minnesota and elsewhere.
Tyson Barrie, Tyson Jost and Ian Cole scored for Colorado, which won its second straight game.
Minnesota remained one point behind the idle Arizona Coyotes for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference, while the Avalanche got within one point of the Wild and two of Arizona. Colorado also has a game in hand on Minnesota.
The result also clinched a playoff berth for the San Jose Sharks.
Zach Parise scored and Devan Dubnyk stopped 35 shots for Minnesota.
