How important is this year's Minnesota Vikings playoff run? The Minnesota Wild just changed their game time for January 14th to be sure it won't conflict with the divisional NFC playoff game.

The Vikings are set to face either the Rams, Panthers, or Saints at U.S. Bank Stadium following their first-round bye in Minneapolis at 3:40 PM CT on Sunday, January 14th.

The Minnesota Wild were scheduled to face the Vancouver Canucks at the Xcel Energy Center at 6 PM on the 14th, but the Wild execs felt that was a little to close for comfort -- so they delayed the start time until 7 PM to accommodate all of us Nordic Vikings/Wild fans.
