Eric Staal scored a goal in Minnesota's 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit on Sunday.

Staal has 26 goals and 58 points in 75 games. This is the most goals he's scored in a single season since 2010-11. Nate Prosser scored his first goal in 36 games this season. He was playing in his 279th career game and that was his sixth marker in the NHL.

Minnesota forwards seem to all be slumping at the same time.

Nino Niederreiter has scored only one goal in his last 19 games, while Jason Zucker has one goal in his last 12. Mikko Koivu has registered only goals in his past 23 games and Charlie Coyle has two goals in his past 19. This is not a recipe for success. No wonder Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau is in a bad mood.

Devan Dubnyk is expected to start against Detroit Sunday afternoon.

Dubnyk had his first game off since February 16th as Darcy Kuemper was in goal for the Wild's 4-2 loss to Vancouver Saturday afternoon. If he wins it will be his 38th of victory of the season and will set a franchise record.The game starts at 12:30 EDT so make sure you have Dubnyk active early.

Ryan White (flu) returned to action on Saturday.

White was a minus-two as he missed the week with the flu. He has nine goals and 16 points but his value in fantasy is in the penalty minute category where he has 77 minutes in the sin bin. Activate him if you normally would.
Mar 26 - 2:51 AM

Christian Folin (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

The defenseman was a minus-one. He has only two goals and seven points in 45 games this season so his fantasy value is negligible.
Mar 26 - 2:51 AM

Darcy Kuemper kicked out 17 of 21 shots in a 4-2 loss to Vancouver Saturday afternoon.

Kuemper allowed all four goals on 13 shots in the second frame. He dropped to 7-5-3 with his last win coming on Feb. 16.

Jason Zucker has potted one goal in the last 12 games.

He also has just one assist in the past seven matches. Zucker and the Wild have had a rough month of March. Hopefully, he can get back on track before the playoffs because he's been a key part of the team's success this season. Zucker ranks third on Minnesota with 21 goals and he has posted a personal best 46 points in 73 contests.

Devan Dubnyk allowed two goals on 26 shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Dubnyk was the favorite to take home the Vezina Trophy just a few weeks ago, but his recent rough patch may have taken him out of the running. Dubnyk has now dropped five of his last six games and he's given up three goals or more in half of those outings. He has a 37-19-3 record with a 2.17 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage.
Mar 24 - 12:29 AM

Zach Parise scored a goal in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Parise's had a relatively disappointing fantasy season, but he's managed to pick up at least one point in each of his last four games. The Wild forward opened the scoring at the 2:07 mark of the first period, but the Flyers responded by scoring three straight goals. Parise has 17 goals and 36 points in 61 games.

Ryan White is too sick with the flu to play on Thursday against the Flyers.

Coach Bruce Boudreau said that he doesn't think White will be able to return until the weekend, when Minnesota plays twice, at the earliest. So consider him day-to-day for now.
Mar 23 - 7:20 PM

Devan Dubnyk is projected be in net against the Flyers on Thursday.

It's been a rough month for Dubnyk in March. He's posted a 3-7 record in 11 games with a .900 save percentage and a 2.82 GAA. Earlier in the season, he allowed three goals on 36 shots in a loss to Philadelphia as well.
