Its hard to find a hotter team in the NHLs Western Conference than the Minnesota Wild.Under coach Bruce Boudreau, the Wild have won seven in a row to improve to 18-8-4 on the season. No team in the NHL is allowing fewer goals per game than Minnesota (1.9), and only a handful of teams are scoring at a higher rate than the Wilds 2.9 goals per game.Tuesdays opponent in St. Paul, Minn., is trending in the opposite direction. The Colorado Avalanche have lost three straight to drop to 11-18-1 on the season. The Avalanche are on the opposite end of the spectrum from the Wild in terms of goals per game, allowing an NHL-worst 3.2.Those numbers aside, the Avalanche are 2-0-0 so far this season against the Wild. Colorado topped Minnesota 1-0 on Nov. 5 and stole a 3-2 victory on the road 14 days later.They seem to play really good against us , Boudreau told NHL.com. Theyve got some dynamic players, and when theyre all on top of their game, theyre really good.But things havent gone well as of late for the Avalanche. Since its latest win over Minnesota, Colorado has won just three times over a 13-game span. The glaring contest in that stretch was a 10-1 loss to Montreal on Dec. 10.Now the Avalanche will try to get back on track against a Wild team that has only lost three times since falling to Colorado one month ago.You cant worry about the past, especially when youre going through something like this, Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar told the Denver Post. You gotta get ready for the next game. Our group has done a good job of doing that. And then we come out to play the next night, but when things dont go your way early or something ends up in the back of your net, you can see the frustration setting in for sure.Minnesotas lineup may include a new face, as longtime minor leaguer Pat Cannone was recalled from the Iowa Wild. Its the first time in his six-year minor league career that the 30-year-old Cannone has been recalled by an NHL team.Its a great opportunity and Im really looking forward to it, Cannone told NHL.com. You play for that, you work hard for that. It was a long time coming.Cannone was recalled after Erik Haula suffered a lower-body injury Saturday. Haula will not play Tuesday against Colorado.The Avalanche will welcome back goaltender Semyon Varlamov, who missed the last three games with a groin injury. Varlamov is 6-12-0 with a 3.21 goals-against average in 18 starts in net this year.Im feeling good. Im ready to play (Tuesday), Varlamov told NHL.com. If you feel like youre not ready or somethings bothering you like a past injury, you have to continue to do treatment and then make sure youre ready 100 percent when you want to get back on the ice.

MANCHESTER, England -- Anthony Crollas promoter Eddie Hearn is confident the Briton will get a rematch with Jorge Linares in 2017.Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) lost his WBA world lightweight title to Linares by a unanimous points decision in a fight to decide the best in the division on Saturday.Linares (41-3, 27 KOs) ended a lay-off of nearly a year, due to a fractured right hand that needed surgery, to out-point the Briton 115-114, 117-111 and 115-113 at the Manchester Arena.The Venezuelan also earned the WBC Diamond and Ring magazine belts for going 12 rounds for the first time in his career in a close contest.And Hearn is hopeful that Linares, who stopped Kevin Mitchell in London last year, will return to Britain next year.Sometimes a loss in this sport at the highest level is not the end of the world and Anthony will be back to try and win those belts back in the early part of next year, Hearn said.Jorge Linares will get a lot of money for the rematch and Anthony will be in a bigger fight next time around. Linares experience in the back end of the fight won him the fight.Linares has hurt his hand but I would say February or March for the rematch.Linares was stripped of the WBC version of the world title due to his inactivity earlier this year and another possibility for his next fight would be to fight Montenegros Dejan Zlaticanin (22-0, 15 KOs), who became WBC champion in his absence.But Hearn thinks Linares will opt to fight Crolla next rather than a world title unification fight.ddddddddddddIts probably the biggest fight for Linares out there and Gilberto Mendoza [the WBA president] says he will order the rematch anyway, Hearn said.Crollas work rate and energy were not deemed enough by the judges who favoured Linares slick and fast combinations on the counter attack.Crolla was hurt in the sixth round but then had a good spell in the fight before Linares decisively finished strongly in the last three rounds to ensure he got the unanimous decision.At this moment in time I would love a rematch more than any other fight in the division, said Crolla.I felt the fight was going to plan and he caught me with a a great shot in the sixth round. I felt that gave him a bit of belief.Im 29 and Im still learning, Im still trying to better myself. He was very sharp and moved his feet well. I will come back stronger.Britain now has 12 world champions following Crollas loss in his second defence of the WBA belt and he was the fourth British boxer to lose a world title fight in three weeks following Liam Smith [to Saul Alvarez], Kell Brook [to Gennady Golovkin] and Charlie Edwards [to Johnriel Casimero].Rather than it all falling apart I prefer to think British boxers are trying to turn themselves into greats rather than just world champions and youre not going to win all these fights, said Hearn.
