Minnesota, which made an improbable run to the Western Conference finals last season before falling to Anaheim, improved to 1-0-3 in its last four with Wednesday’s 1-1 tie at Vancouver.
The tie was Minnesota’s 20th of the season, tops in the NHL and just four shy of the NHL record set by Philadelphia in 1969-70.
“If half of those are wins, we’re in a playoff situation,” Roloson said.
The Wild had a chance to get two points, but Roloson gave up the tying goal with 4:17 left in regulation and Minnesota’s Filip Kuba hit the post on a shot with 1.7 seconds remaining.
Columbus, an NHL-worst 5-23-4-2 on the road, has dropped five straight overall, including Saturday’s 5-3 loss in St. Louis. Alexander Svitov and Trevor Letowski scored for the Blue Jackets, who kicked off a five-game road trip.
Blue Jackets goalie Fred Brathwaite left Saturday’s game after the first period. He was hit by a long shot from St. Louis’ Bryce Salvador. Marc Denis took over for Brathwaite, whose status for Sunday has not been disclosed.
