While the Wild has hopes of contending for the division, it's more likely that the team will be battling the Dallas Stars for playoff positioning all year long. February 22nd marks the last time that the two will meet in the regular season.

This will be Minnesota's first home game against the Chicago Blackhawks since Patrick Kane scored a series-winning goal on Ilya Bryzgalov in overtime of last spring's Game 6. The prospect of revenge as well as a budding rivalry make this the most compelling game on the Wild's 2014-15 schedule.
