0 of 11 Streeter Lecka/Getty Images By the time March Madness rolls around, the freshmen who arrived on campus several months prior as green, inexperienced newbies are now seasoned college basketball veterans. However, the NCAA tournament is a different animal. That’s why that mid-major No. 12 seed with a senior-heavy lineup is always such an […]

After battling themselves and the rest of the NHL for most of a season, the Wild are now fighting enemies more indefatigable: time, history, reality. It’s hard to like their chances. The Wild have had a tough enough go of it against fellow humans this season; how does one expect them to defeat the immutable laws of nature? After losing what was in their control on Tuesday — a game against the Colorado Avalanche at Xcel Energy Center — the Wild learned they lost elsewhere, as well, falling two more points behind Dallas in the Western Conference playoff chase. They now have eight games to pass Arizona, which retained its one-point lead on Minnesota and now has a game in hand, if they want to play in the postseason for the seventh straight year. That’s a lot of bad news for the Wild, not to mention the fact that Colorado is now within a point of catching them. There was a smattering of boos at game’s end Tuesday, but they didn’t appear to be for Minnesota, which did good things against Colorado — skated hard, crashed the net, threw shots on goal, killed five penalties, played physical — yet failed in the prime objective. What’s the point of booing anymore? There have been times this season the Wild laid an egg, but they have played with effort in their past three games and gone 1-1-1. They needed to go 3-0-0, but with end near it has become clear that this team is simply not good enough to win this fight, and it’s not all their fault. The Wild are playing without five key players they started the season with, three traded away and two, center Mikko Koivu (knee) and defenseman Matt Dumba (shoulder), lost for the season to injuries. The absences of those last two cannot be overstated, felt everywhere but no place more than on the penalty kill, which has dipped into the bottom half of the NHL. That’s a big deal for a team that takes a minus-17 goal differential into Friday’s game against the Capitals. Newcomers Ryan Donato and Kevin Fiala have played well and OK, respectively, but are still learning their new teammates. Center Victor Rask, acquired for Nino Niederreiter on Jan. 16, seems lost. In any case, their additions haven’t been enough to cure what really ails the Wild: the inability to pot Grade A scoring chances. They had a lot of them among their 37 shots on Colorado goaltender Phillip Grubauer on Tuesday, but only Zach Parise’s power-play deflection of Ryan Suter’s shot from the point found the back of the net. The Wild missed point-blank when Jason Zucker missed a wide-open net with a backhand that went wide in the second period, and when Pontus Aberg was stopped from the slot in the third period. On the few occasions Grubauer left a loose puck near the crease, the Wild couldn’t shove it past. “If you want to win, those have to go in,” coach Bruce Boudreau said, “and they get the one opportunity on a breakaway and they put it in. It’s very frustrating.” Yes, the winning goal came off a turnover at the blue line. Tyson Yost corralled the puck, skated through the slot with a defender on his tail and lifted a backhander over Devan Dubnyk’s shoulder for a 2-1 lead at 13:04 of the second period. [related_articles location=”right” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] Tuesday’s effort was not entirely inconsequential; it’s something the Wild can hold on to when they try to extend their playoff viability in road games this weekend against playoff-bound Washington and Carolina. But as veteran center Eric Fehr said after Tuesday’s game, “At this point in the season, effort’s not enough. We need to find a way to get results.” The Wild’s playoff hopes are not dead, especially with head-to-head matchups at Arizona and Dallas still on the schedule, but considering what we’ve been watching with our eyes, it’s difficult to see them surviving. With this team at this time, the Wild need a nearly Herculean effort to win on any night against any team. No team can do that.

HOUSTON — The asteroid Bennu, with the shape of a spinning top, turns out to be extremely rugged. That is going to make it difficult for a NASA spacecraft, Osiris-Rex, to vacuum up a sample to take back to Earth. It was designed to collect sand and gravel, not boulders. In addition, Bennu is shooting […]
