In this market, we have all four of the accepted major sports teams, with a fifth in MLS scheduled to arrive in a few years. For now, it's the four. The past three teams to make it to the postseason among those four were:

• The 2014-15 Wild, which clinched a playoff spot last night.

• The 2013-14 Wild, which made it to the second round.

•The 2012-13 Wild, which ended a playoff drought.
