Matt Dumba generated one goal and one assist on Sunday night in a 6-2 win against Winnipeg.

Dumba may be dealing with an injury issue, but he looked good to go in Game 3 and helped Minnesota get back into the series. He didn't have a point in the first two games at Winnipeg.

Matt Dumba will be in the lineup for Game 3 on Sunday night.

Dumba did not practice Saturday and there were murmurs this morning that he could be a game-time decision, but coach Bruce Boudreau has confirmed that the 23-year-old defender will be in the lineup.

Bruce Boudreau seemed to indicate that Matt Dumba missed practice just for maintenance.

Boudreau apparently told Dumba to stay home because he has played 30 minutes in each of the last two games. The official quote from the head coach is "so he should be ok. Well, he is ok". Giving Dumba some time off makes sense seeing as he has played 60 minutes worth of hockey through the first two games of the playoffs. We'd expect to see the 23-year-old blueliner is the lineup tomorrow, however it's worth mentioning that some of the Wild's other defensemen seemed to indicate that Dumba was dealing with some sort of injury.

Matt Dumba is not practicing with his teammates.

Ryan Murphy is currently skating alongside Jonas Brodin on the top pairing. Losing Dumba for Game 3 would be a huge blow to a Wild team that is already without Ryan Suter for the remainder of the year. We'll get an update after practice from the Wild but this is probably just a maintenance day for Dumba.

Matt Dumba has been logging huge minutes through two playoff games.

Dumba has been forced into an increased role because Ryan Suter (ankle) is out of the lineup. The Wild blue liner played 30:03 in Game 1 and 26:58 in Game 2. "Like the [Incredible] Hulk, the madder he got, the better he got," head coach Bruce Boudreau said. "And with Dumbs, the more he plays, it doesn’t seem to tire him out. He gets more into the game."

Matt Dumba notched one goal and one assist in a 5-4 OT loss to Los Angeles on Thursday night.

Dumba's power-play tally at the 7:19 mark of the second frame gave the Wild their first lead of the game (2-1). The 23-year-old then picked up helpers on goals by Zach Parise (twice) and Jason Zucker. Dumba finished the night with a plus-3 rating, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in 26:15 of ice time. This was the first time he picked up more than two points in a game all season. He's up to 12 goals and 46 points in 77 games.

Matt Dumba found the back of the net in Friday's 4-2 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

The goal allowed him to tie his career-high of 11 goals. Also, four of his 11 tallies have been game-winners, including last night's. The 23-year-old still has 11 games to go to set a new mark. He has 39 points and a plus-11 rating in 71 games this season. Dumba is certainly worth owning in most standard fantasy leagues.
