Darcy Kuemper allowed four goals on 30 shots in Minnesota's 4-3 OT loss to Dallas.

The Wild put forth a good effort tonight, but they were unable to stop the bleeding that's lasted over a week now. This was Minnesota's sixth consecutive loss. Kuemper has a 5-2-5 record with a 2.22 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season. Stay away from Wild goaltenders for now.

Erik Haula picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 OT loss to the Dallas Stars.

Haula opened the scoring at the 4:48 mark of the first period and he also set up Justin Fontaine later on in the period. The 24-year-old has five points in his last eight contests. Haula has five goals and 13 points in 47 games in 2015-16. He won't have any fantasy value going forward. The Wild have lost six consecutive games.

Chris Porter will be scratched against the Stars on Tuesday night.

Porter isn't much of a scorer, with just 32 points in 221 career NHL games. But he does have 531 hits in that span, including 117 in 48 games this season.

Jason Zucker will suit up in Tuesday's match against Dallas.

He was a healthy scratch on Saturday. Zucker has zero goals and one helper in his last 11 games.
Feb 9 - 12:58 PM

Thomas Vanek will get back into the lineup on Tuesday night.

He was a healthy scratch Saturday versus St. Louis. Vanek said he knows he has to be better and sitting for a game didn't change that. He has no goals and one assist in his last eight contests.
Feb 9 - 12:51 PM

Mikko Koivu will indeed be in the lineup on Tuesday night.

He wasn't able to practice Monday because of some discomfort, but it wasn't expected to be anything serious.
Feb 9 - 12:27 PM

Tyler Graovac has been returned to AHL Iowa.

The Wild had to make room on the roster to bring up defenseman Mike Reilly, so Graovac was sent down after he made his second appearance of the 2015-16 NHL season against St. Louis on Saturday night.
Feb 8 - 6:25 PM

Mike Reilly has been summoned from the minors.

Jared Spurgeon is doubtful for Tuesday because of a deep bruise, so that prompted Reilly's recall. Reilly has dressed in four games with Minnesota this season and he is still looking for his first NHL point.

Jared Spurgeon is doubtful to play on Tuesday because of a deep bruise.

The good news is that that may be the only game he misses after he was injured on Saturday following a shot block.
Feb 8 - 2:44 PM

Mikko Koivu left Monday's practice early due to an injury, but coach Mike Yeo is hopeful that the Wild center will be available to play Tuesday.

He left the ice due to some discomfort, but it's not believed to be serious. We will leave him active for now and update his status when we learn more.

Jared Spurgeon left Saturday's game against the Blues after blocking a shot.

It's another tough blow for the struggling Wild who will already be without Jonas Brodin for the next three to six weeks. "I don’t have an update yet, but one thing I know about Spurgeon is when he leaves a game, it’s not something small," coach Mike Yeo said. "I’m not going to sit here and say he’s going to be out long-term, but I will say that I know he was in pain."

Jonas Brodin is expected to miss the next three to six weeks because of a broken foot.

Brodin was injured after blocking a shot against the New York Rangers earlier this week. The 22-year-old has one goal, six points and a minus-4 rating in 50 games with the Wild this season.
Feb 7 - 11:56 AM

Tyler Graovac was called up from the minors on Saturday February 6.

Graovac had two shots on goal in 9:36 minutes of ice time on Saturday. It was his second game with the Wild this season and his fifth career NHL contest.
Feb 7 - 2:11 AM

Matt Dumba got the sole goal for the Wild in their 4-1 loss to the Blues on Saturday night.

Dumba scored on the power play late in the second period. He has points in three consecutive games now, to up his totals to seven goals and 15 points. He certainly has the talent to be a factor. Zach Parise and Charlie Coyle picked up assists.
