Wild release 2013-14 schedule, complete with Olympic break


The Minnesota Wild has released its 2013-14 regular season schedule.

It starts with a four-game homestand on Oct. 3, and finishes with a three-game set at Xcel Energy Center on April 13.

Other highlights include an Oct. 28 home clash with the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

Zach Parise will also face his former team, the New Jersey Devils, for the first time at the X on Nov. 3.

Only six games are schedule for February. That's because the league will take a two week break for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Team Canada is the defending gold medal champion, thanks to an overtime win over Team USA in Vancouver in 2010.

In that game, Parise scored the tying goal with seconds left in regulation -- but Sidney Crosby scored the winner in overtime.
