Matt Dumba bounced back Thursday night after he was criticized by coach Bruce Boudreau.
Dumba registered a pair of assists in a 6-3 win over Montreal. He also had one shot, two hits and two blocks in 25:58 of ice time. "I thought that was his best game of the year," Boudreau said. "He shot the puck. He played a simple game. And when he plays a simple game, his skills come through." Dumba wanted to redeem himself after he made a costly turnover in Tuesday's loss to Winnipeg.

Coach Bruce Boudreau has not liked what's seen from Matt Dumba so far this season.

Boudreau's frustration reached a boiling point in Tuesday's loss to Winnipeg when Dumba made a drop pass to no one at his own blue line and Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers went in all alone and scored what proved to be the game-winning goal. "You know, he just hasn't been playing that well," Boudreau said. "He's a good player that maybe I've set the bar pretty high for him, and he hasn't reached that bar. I just thought that was an inexcusable play. And at some point, you have to be accountable for your actions." Dumba was benched after the turnover. He has three assists and a plus-3 rating in 10 games this campaign.

Matt Dumba's ankle was tweaked during Tuesday's game.

There is plenty of speculation that Minnesota is working toward a deal to prevent Vegas from choosing Matt Dumba and Marco Scandella in the expansion draft.

Minnesota doesn't have a first-round pick in this year's draft and they are already missing a second-round pick in the next two drafts. If a trade is or has already been worked out then it may cost the Wild a prospect.

Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher is reportedly still negotiating with Vegas ahead of tomorrow's trade deadline.

As of 3:00 p.m. ET, teams won't be able to trade with anyone except the Golden Knights. The Wild are in a bit of a jam on defense, as they'll likely protect Ryan Suter, Jared Spurgeon and one of Matt Dumba, Jonas Brodin or Marco Scandella. Losing one of those blueliners to Vegas for nothing would definitely hurt Minnesota.
