Wild can't afford slipup against lowly Devils

Bruce Boudreau offered perhaps the boldest words spoken this season by an NHL head coach on Thursday afternoon, when he guaranteed his team, the struggling Minnesota Wild, would make a seventh straight trip to the postseason.

"We're going to make the playoffs," Boudreau said following practice. "That's about as elaborate as I want to get. You want me to predict how many wins we're going to have in the last month and a half? No. But we're going to make the playoffs."

Then again, if a head coach is going to make such a stout statement, best to do so when his team is about to face an opponent that can make him look prescient.
