The Minnesota Wild held a final practice at TRIA Rink in St. Paul on Sunday before heading to Edmonton, Alberta for the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Wild head coach Dean Evason had his team on the ice to get some final work in preparing for the Vancouver Canucks. Game 1 of the opening round series is Sunday, August 2.
"All of our players were on the ice today, everyone is healthy, it's a good feeling knowing that we have everyone available for this playoff run," Evanson said after practice on Sunday.

The Wild will have some long nights drawing the late games that begin at 9:30 pm.
Game 1: Wild vs. Vancouver August 2nd - 9:30 pm
Game 2: Wild vs. Vancouver August 4th - 9:30 pm
Game 3: Wild vs. Vancouver August 6th - TBD
The most uncertain thing will be how long the Wild will be away from the Twin Cities. The team could be gone anywhere between two weeks to two months depending on the teams success in the NHL playoffs.
