ST. PAUL, Minn. - If you didn't score Minnesota Wild play-off season tickets, there's still ways to cheer on your favorite team at the Xcel Energy Center.

The Minnesota Wild are hosting two pre-game parties outside of Gate 2 for games 3 and 4 against the Colorado Avalanche.

The pre-game party for Game 3 will begin at 4pm. Game time is at 6pm.

For Game 4 on Thursday, April 24, the celebration will run from 5 – 8pm, leading up to the 8:30 p.m. game time.

Expect live music, appearances by FSN Girls, happy hour deals, NHL Alumni autographs, face painters, an appearance by Nordy, and much more.

"It's going to be a lot of people having a great time, enjoying some good food, enjoying a couple of drinks, and getting geared for the play-off game," said Xcel Energy Center's executive chef Jason Steidle.

There will also be a pig roast for fans.

"The losses [against the Colorado Avalanche] mean nothing. We got to pick up two wins here, even the series up. So everybody needs to get here, and show their support," said Steidle.

2003 Game 6 playoff hero Richard Park will be doing Let's Play Hockey prior to Game 3, and Jim will do Let's Play Hockey for Game 4.
