Brent Burns (leg) is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday but will play right wing instead of defense.

Burns has experience playing forward from his time with the Houston Aeros of the AHL, which was one of the teams he played for while a part of the Wild organization. "There was a time in his career where he was an in-between guy. "We'll tap into that a little bit. We'll see where it goes and what can come out of it," coach Todd McLellan said Tuesday. McLellan was Burns' coach in Houston and said Tuesday that Burns will still get time on the blue line, particularly on the power play.

Justin Abdelkader scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Red Wings found themselves down 2-0 heading into the first intermission, but they managed to fight back in the second frame. Abdelkader cut the lead to 2-1 by converting on a penalty shot at the 2:30 mark of the period. He then registered the primary assist on Mike Green's first goal of the season. Unfortunately for the Wings, Nikita Kucherov scored the game-winning goal (his second of the game) in the third period. After picking up just one point in his first four games of the season, Abdelkader has now recorded three points in his last two games. He has two goals and two assists in six games this season.

Nikita Kucherov scored a pair of goals in Monday's 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

After Tyler Johnson opened the scoring at the 9:15 mark of the first period, Kucherov made it 2-0 less than two minutes later. The Russian winger then scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period which proved to be the game-winner. Kucherov finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, a team-high six shots on goal in 20:50 of ice time. He's now scored at least one goal in each of Tampa Bay's first six games. Kucherov has seven goals and 10 points in six games. He's one of the elite offensive players in the league right now.

Wild GM Chuck Fletcher indicated that Mikael Granlund (groin) could be ready to play as early as this weekend.

Granlund was originally expected to miss the team's games at Winnipeg and Calgary, but Fletcher said that's "not necessarily" the plan anymore. He looked good while skating, shooting and puckhandling before Monday's practice.

Steve Mason will start Tuesday night against Columbus.

Mason has a 0-2-0 record with a 6.53 goals-against average and an .831 save percentage in his previous two starts this campaign. Connor Hellebuyck has played well in three straight wins between the pipes for the Jets, but Mason was expected to get another opportunity.

Zach Parise (undisclosed) suffered a setback and left Monday's practice early.

"I don't know how much of a setback," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I talked to him before practice and he felt great." He was skating with Eric Staal and Joel Eriksson Ek before leaving the ice. Parise has been trying to work himself back from an injury he had early at training camp. Last week, he denied reports that it was a back issue.

Brayden Point (illness) is probable to play Monday night.

Point didn't take part in the morning skate for "body maintenance," but coach Jon Cooper expects him to play against Detroit. He is listed as a game-time decision. It looks like you can keep Point active even though he may be feeling a bit under the weather.

Drew Doughty helped lead the Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Islanders on Sunday night.

A shorthanded, game-winning goal in the final match of the fantasy week surely helped owners too. Doughty is off to a red hot start with two goals and five points in five games. He's surpassed the 50-point barrier only twice in his career.
