The Minnesota Wild have another pivotal playoff game Tuesday against the Winnipeg Jets and they will be without one of their star players tonight and maybe longer.

The Wild tweeted some bad news earlier today, announcing that Zach Parise will miss tonight's game and is considered "week to week" after suffering a fractured sternum late in the Wild's game 3 victory Sunday night.

This isn't the kind of news you want to hear just hours before what pretty much amounts to a "must win" game.  The Wild do not want to go back to Winnipeg down 3 game to 1 in the series.

The puck drops tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the Xcel Energy Center as the team looks to rally around adversity yet again.
