Ryan Suter was separated from Jared Spurgeon at practice Monday and he wasn't thrilled by the decision.

He skated with a fellow left-handed defender, Jonas Brodin. "Like I've said, I need to play with a right-handed defenseman to give me more options, neutral zone, offensively and even coming out of D zone," said Suter. "It's not fair to put a guy on his off side. I don't if that was just for practice today or what it is. They didn't say anything." Minnesota has posted one victory in the last seven games (1-4-2) and coach Mike Yeo decided to go back to defense pairings that have worked well in the past. Suter and Brodin as well as Marco Scandella and Jared Spurgeon have been pairings in the past few seasons. Suter said he will do what the coaches think is best, but it probably isn't the best idea to potentially disturb the roll that Suter has been on this year.

Minnesota has been trying to keep Ryan Suter's playing time down a bit this season.

He is still leading the league in ice time per game at 27:39, but that is lower than the averages he posted in the previous two seasons when he topped 29 minutes of action. "In a perfect world, we'd like to keep [Suter] down in that 25-26-whatever it is range, but he's had to step up lately," coach Mike Yeo said referring to Minnesota's injuries on the back end. "He's played more minutes, and the impressive thing is that hasn't thrown off his game." Suter has racked up 19 points in 19 games this year.

Ryan Suter, who picked up three points in Saturday's win over the Preds, believes his team was finally "on".

This was the Wild's first game home after a four-game road trip that saw them go 1-2-1. "We were just on, finally. It’s been a while," said Suter. "We hadn’t been playing well at all on the road. We knew that we had to come home and get this thing turned around quick." The 30-year-old has three goals and 19 points in 19 games this season.

Ryan Suter contributed to three of the Wild’s goals in their 4-0 win against the Predators on Saturday night.

Suter scored a power-play goal in the first period, then assisted on Jonas Brodin’s second-period goal and Thomas Vanek’s third-period, power-play tally. While Suter has always been a tremendous two-way force on the ice, he hasn’t been an upper echelon offensive fantasy player. This year, that has changed, as he has three goals and 19 points in 19 games. Mikael Granlund had the other goal, while also getting an assist. Vanek had an assist as well, while Jason Pominville picked up two helpers.

Ryan Suter believes Minnesota's defense is as good as any in the NHL.

"I don’t argue with people, but I tell people our D corps, I’d put up against anyone in the league," Suter said. "We have depth, we have guys that can skate and play. We’re definitely a top-five D-corps in this league. When I first came here, no one really knew what anyone’s potential was. Over the last three years, guys have grown into their roles. … This year will be a good year for us. It has to be. We’re running out of time, we’re running out of chances to win." The Minnesota blue line should feature Suter, Jonas Brodin, Jared Spurgeon, Marco Scandella, Matt Dumba and Christian Folin.

Ryan Suter had an assist in Minnesota's 4-1 loss to Chicago Sunday night.

Suter also had a minus-three rating in the losing effort. That reduced him to a minus-four rating in the second round series against the Blackhawks. "They have some good players and you make mistakes, and most of the time it ends up in the back of the net," Suter said of Chicago. "They have that killer instinct. Their top players know how to score." The Blackhawks have a 2-0 series lead.
