The Wild will raise the Stanley Cup in June according to Bud Grant and Tracy Claeys.

The legendary former Vikings coach and Gophers football head coach unveiled last week they picked the Wild to win their NHL Bracket Challenge. Both coaches have the Wild beating the Washington Capitals in the Stanley Cup Finals.

If you look closely at Grant's bracket pictured on the Wild's release, it appears he picked Detroit and Washington to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. The rest of his picks are tough to decipher. 

It appears Claeys has Los Angeles and the Wild in the Western Conference Finals and Florida and Washington in the Eastern Conference Finals. 

The Wild rallied from a two-goal deficit Monday night against Dallas to win Game 3 of the first-round series, 5-3. Dallas leads the series 2-1 with Game 4 Wednesday at Xcel Energy Center.
