Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) - The final preparations are underway for the Minnesota Wild as the Stanley Cup Playoffs open on Thursday for Mike Yeo's team.

The Wild needed a win on the final day of the season last year against Colorado ironically just to get in, but it's a completely different feel now.

Zach Parise/ 56 Pts. In 67 GP: “This time of the year last year we were getting beat pretty good by some non-playoff teams and we just didn't feel good about the way we were playing. That's a tough way to enter the playoffs. Going back a couple weeks I think we like the way we've been playing. We beat some good teams to get in. We just have been playing a better team game I think all around.”

The Wild open the series Thursday at 8:30 in Denver.
