Matt Dumba was limited to just 9:29 of ice time in Game 3, but it wasn't because coach John Torchetti was unhappy with his performance.

He posted a plus-2 rating and one assist in Minnesota's 5-3 victory over Dallas. "Comes with matchups," Torchetti explained. "If they're double shifting [Jamie] Benn, if they go Benn's line and then go third line and then come back with [Jason] Spezza's line, then we're going to come back with our top two guys, so if they're going 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, and if that matchup's not there, we're going to come down to our matchup. So it usually comes down to matchups."

He hasn't been seeing much time the power play for the last six games, which has cut into his ice time.

The Wild want to get Dumba back to the player he was at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.
