Defenseman Ryan Suter is having a tough start with the Wild after signing for megabucks as a free agent with Minnesota.

Sutter has been on the ice for eight of the 10 goals surrendered so far by the Wild. He was on for three of the Red Wings' five goals in the Wild's 5-3 loss in Detroit Friday night. "He played hard minutes, it was extremely difficult," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "You’re looking at the goals, I mean which one can you fault him on? I think it’s a matter of circumstance more than anything else. It’s unfortunate. He’s been on the ice for goals, but he’s been on the ice a lot." Gates Imbeau of www.fantrax.com suggests that Suter and Shea Weber are both struggling so far because they miss each other after playing together on the Nashville Predators' blueline for years.

Semyon Varlamov (groin) won't play until after the All-Star break.

Coach Jared Bednar said that Varlamov's groin injury isn't a day-to-day issue, so the team decided to shut him down for a while. The Avalanche netminder has dealt with his fair share of groin injuries throughout his career, including a few trips to the sidelines this season.

John Carlson (lower body) is doubtful for Thursday's game against St. Louis.

"He did some therapy stuff today and that," coach Barry Trotz said. "He got worked on yesterday and all the good stuff. I would say he’s doubtful just because he hasn't skated for a couple days. We'll make sure he's healthy before we put him back in." Carlson didn't play on Monday due to a lower-body injury, but he is close to being ready to play again. Still, Washington is considering bringing up a defenseman.

Morgan Rielly (lower body) will not play Thursday against the New York Rangers.

Patrik Laine (concussion) skated before Wednesday's morning session.

Ryan Miller recorded his second shutout of the season in a 1-0 victory over the Predators Tuesday night.

Miller has been hot since December 28. In the seven games leading up to the Canucks victory, he recorded five wins and two overtime losses with an average save percentage of .940. His first shutout of the season came in a 3-0 victory over the Coyotes January 4 and he has been under the .900 mark only one time in that span.

John Gibson was nearly perfect in a 2-1 win over the Lightning Tuesday night with 27 saves on 28 shots.

Gibson entered the contest with a 5-1-1 record during his last eight games and in that span, he had save percentages of .913 or greater for an average of .956. He blanked Detroit on January 4 and Dallas on January 10, and while he came up one shy of getting his third shutout this month, his save percentage of .964 was stellar by any measure.

Kevin Shattenkirk scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Shattenkirk cut Ottawa's lead to 3-2 late in the second period and he also helped set up Alexander Steen's power play goal early in the third period to make it 3-3. The Blues defenseman has four points in his last three contests. He has nine goals and 30 points in 45 games. It'll be interesting to see what the Blues will do with the pending unrestricted free agent. If they're unable to re-sign him, they could trade him before the deadline.

Mike Hoffman scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the St. Louis Blues.

He finished the game with a plus-3 rating and five shots on goal in 17:21 of ice time. Hoffman has 14 goals and 31 points in 38 games this season. Teammate Mark Stone also scored two goals in the victory.

Unfortunately for the Wild, they allowed the Devils to score back-to-back goals before the end of the game. Spurgeon has now picked up nine points in his last 10 games. He's up to six goals, 15 assists and a plus-26 rating in 39 games this season.
