(Tempe, AZ)  —  The Minnesota Wild are evacuating Xcel Energy Center for the Boys State High School Hockey Tournament which puts them on the road tonight and tomorrow.  Tonight they start the brief two game road trip against the Coyotes looking to build upon Sunday’s win over the Sharks.  In that one, Krill Kaprizov scored a hat trick to help the Wild rally from a 2-0 deficit and capture a 4-3 win.  That stopped a three game losing streak to keep their flickering playoff hopes alive.  The Wild are 1-1 on the season series against the Coyotes including a  3-1 win at Mullett Arena back on February 14th.  Puck drops at 8 P-M tonight from Tempe, AZ.

Before leaving for the road trip, MNN’s Kevin Falness caught up with Wild rookie defenseman Brock Faber, also a former Gopher and Maple Grove Crimson:
