Coach Mike Yeo is trying to get Matt Dumba back to the form he displayed in the second half of the 2014-15 season.

The Wild coaching staff has been holding video tutorials with the young defender to try to get him back on track. Dumba has one assist and a minus-2 rating in five games this season.

On top of scoring four points, Dumba was also a plus-6 in this contest. He is slated to start the year on the third pairing with Mike Reilly but can move up with more performances like these. The former seventh overall pick has loads of potential and is someone to keep an eye on as training camp comes to an end.

Ryan Suter and goaltender Devan Dubnyk picked up the assists on Dumba's goal. The Wild now trail 2-0 in the series, but they won't be in real danger until they lose a game on home ice.

Matt Dumba will make his NHL playoff debut Thursday at St. Louis.

"I had a conversation with him yesterday (to say) the game doesn't change," said coach Mike Yeo. "There's definitely more intensity and there's definitely more emotion and that's the big thing. As far as his game, he should have the same approach, the same preparation going into the game. His play without the puck I've been real pleased with. He has to make sure he has a strong focus on that." He averaged 15 minutes of ice time per game with the Wild during the regular season and he recorded 16 points in 58 contests.
