Ryan Miller will be starting his 500th game for the Sabres, and possibly his last. As for the Islanders, a win sees them leapfrog up to 6th place for the time being. A loss and they’re be flying to Pittsburgh for Round 1. Preview: Edmonton Oilers at Minnesota Wild , 8 p.m. ET The Wild can still move all the way up to sixth place in the Western Conference, but first they just need to clinch. A win versus the Oilers will do that for them, and they couldn’t have picked a better time to face Edmonton: the Oilers have dropped 3 straight, 9 of their last 10, and 29 of their last 46. Preview: Calgary Flames at Chicago Blackhawks , 8:30 p.m. ET Just a tune-up for the Presidents’ Trophy winners versus the Flames, who are closing out their fourth straight season outside the top eight in the West. Preview : Phoenix Coyotes at Colorado Avalanche , 10 p.m. ET Both of these teams are eliminated from the playoffs, but there’s still something to play for: the Gilles Marotte Trophy . Derek Morris has a league-leading 68 shots without a goal. Erik Johnson is second with 62 shots. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/wild-looking-clinch-atkinson-signs-blue-jackets-puck-222236471.html
