Wild fighting to stay alive in playoffs

- The Minnesota Wild are down, but not out.

The St. Louis Blues lead the best of seven series 3-0, meaning the Wild have quite the mountain to climb if they want to keep their Stanley Cup dreams alive.

Only four teams in NHL history have come back to win a playoff series after starting 0-3.

The odds may not be in the team's favor, but left winger Zach Parise says he's drawing on family inspiration when he takes the ice for Game 4.

His father, as a member of the New York Islanders, once rallied against Pittsburgh after being down three games.

"You got to look we have to beat these guys four straight and that's a really tough task, but you look at it 'Guys, let's win the first period tonight and let's go from there and let's win the game,'" said Parise.

The puck drops at 8:30 p.m. at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
