Wild ready for Senators

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild coach Bruce Boudreau has been preaching faith in his system while his team went through an up-and-down first half of the season marred by injuries and inconsistency. Heading into Monday night's home showdown with the Ottawa Senators, there are signs that the Wild players' faith in Boudreau's system might be paying off.

To start with, there's the natural optimism the Wild have from playing at home. After their 5-2 takedown of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday in Minnesota, the Wild now have gone 6-0-2 in their last eight games at Xcel Energy Center.

With the rest of the Central Division teams winning games while the Wild had five days off last week, they know there's no breathing room in the playoff race.
