Zach Parise scored a pair of goals and Devan Dubnyk earned his 29th career shutout to lead the Minnesota Wild to a 3-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers Monday night. 

It was the final regular season home game for Minnesota, and they went out with a victory and later clinched a spot in the postseason thanks to the Los Angeles Kings' 3-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche. 

Parise, by the way, now has 12 goals and 17 points in his last 19 games.

It's very likely that the Wild will meet the Winnipeg Jets in the first round of the playoffs, but the official Stanley Cup Playoffs schedule won't be released until this coming Sunday. 

In order to guarantee they play the Jets in the first round, the Wild needs just one more point in its final three games. 

Minnesota and Pittsburgh are the only teams to reach the playoffs each of the past six years.
