ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Has the Wild round one playoff series reached its boiling point?

The team took Game 3 on home ice Monday, crushing St. Louis, 3-0.
But what can fans expect for the Game 4 match-up?
First off, it could be a late night in St. Paul, since puck drop won’t be until about 8:37 p.m.
Also, the rally towels are all set and ready to go for the crowd.
The process takes about two hours and is all done by a group of parent volunteers at Horace Mann Elementary School, which is just down the road from the Xcel Energy Center.
Every Thursday, members of the Minnesota Wild front office volunteer their time with fourth-graders at the school. In return, parent volunteers help out at the X and raise money for things like supplies, music and art programs.READ MORE: Wisconsin Senate OKs Constitutional Amendment Saying Only Citizens Can Vote In Elections

Wild Foundation Auction
Fans headed to watch Game 4 should consider stopping by section 124. That’s where the Minnesota Wild Foundation is auctioning off 13 different Wild skaters’ “Favorite Things.”
In Ryan Suter’s basket, there’s an autographed All-Star jersey from this season. Jason Zucker has a go-pro in his basket, Goalie Devin Dubnyk’s has some cereal…some serious puck-stopping cereal.
The auction runs until the start of the third period, and all the proceeds benefit the foundation.
Are There Tickets Left?
Select tickets will made available to the public Wednesday afternoon. Those looking to get a ticket should follow the Wild’s social media accounts and wait for an announcement.MORE NEWS: Procession Outside Minnesota Capitol Honors Victims Of Domestic Violence
