Devan Dubnyk will play Tuesday against Dallas.

He has won his last two outings, but he has allowed three goals against in each contest. Dubnyk has 25 wins along with a 1.91 goals-against average and a .935 save percentage in 36 games this campaign.

Mikko Koivu will return from an illness on Tuesday night against Dallas.

He didn't play on Sunday because he wasn't feeling well. Koivu was back between Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker during the morning skate.
Jan 24 - 1:30 PM

Charlie Coyle has gone eight straight games without scoring a goal.

"He's got to shoot the puck when he gets it," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He's not looking to shoot ... ever." Coyle has been credited with just five shots on goal during his slump. He has contributed five assists during that span to give him some fantasy value, but he needs to start firing the puck on goal.

The Minnesota Wild have recalled Christoph Bertschy from the minors.

The 22-year-old has one assist and four penalty minutes in five games with the Wild this season. He's also added 15 points in 36 games in the AHL.
Jan 23 - 8:36 PM

Jason Pominville scored a goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Nashville.

He gave the Wild a 2-0 lead going into the second period, but the Predators rallied in the third to hand Minnesota the loss. Pominville has registered one goal and four assists over a three-game point streak. He has collected nine points in the last nine games.
Jan 23 - 12:11 PM

Kurtis Gabriel has been assigned to the minors.

He logged just 5:10 of ice time on Sunday after he got to play against Nashville because Mikko Koivu was suffering from an illness.
Jan 23 - 12:04 PM

Darcy Kuemper allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 4-2 loss to Nashville on Sunday.

Kuemper falls to 5-3-2 this season with a 3.28 goals against average and .901 save percentage. The 26-year-old will continue to see limited action with a healthy and terrific Devan Dubnyk manning the cage in Minnesota.
Jan 22 - 11:53 PM

Mikael Granlund scored his 11th goal of the season in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Nashville.

The 24-year-old now has a seven-game points streak going with eight points in that span. Altogether, Granlund has 11 goals and 39 points in 46 games this season.
Jan 22 - 10:51 PM

Christian Folin will be scratched against the Predators on Sunday.

Through 34 games this season Folin has posted five points with 20 PIMs, 40 blocks, and 53 hits.
Jan 22 - 7:42 PM

Mikko Koivu is too sick to play in Sunday's match with the Predators.

Through 45 games thus far Koivu has picked up 13 goals and 33 points with 43 blocks as well. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Jan 22 - 7:39 PM

Nate Prosser will return to the blue line against the Predators on Sunday.

Through 18 games this season he's posted two points with 18 hits and 26 blocks.
Jan 22 - 6:25 PM

Confirming an earlier note, Darcy Kuemper will indeed face the Predators on Sunday.

Going into Sunday's contest Kuemper sports a 5-2-2 record with a poor 3.30 GAA and .901 save percentage.
Jan 22 - 6:24 PM

Look for Tyler Graovac to draw back into the Wild lineup against the Predators Sunday night.

He was a healthy scratch Saturday night against the Ducks. Look for Jordan Schroeder to sit this one out to accomodate Graovac.
Jan 22 - 12:55 PM

Darcy Kuemper will likely get the start Sunday against the Predators.

Devan Dubnyk played Saturday in a 5-3 win over Anaheim and a Kuemper start would prevent him from playing three times in four nights. Going into Sunday's contest Kuemper sports a 5-2-2 record with a poor 3.30 GAA and .901 SP. We might pass on putting him into the lineup against a strong Predators' squad.
Jan 22 - 12:48 PM

The Minnesota Wild can thank Jason Zucker and Erik Haula most of all for their comeback, 5-3 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

Early in the second period, the Ducks had gone up 3-1. Zucker and Haula keyed much of the rally from there, as Zucker now has 14 goals on the season while Haula has nine. Ryan Suter scored the game-winner, his seventh of 2016-17. Suter also had two assists on the night.
