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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 22 - 2:05 AM

Only Sergei Bobrovsky's 28 wins edge Devan Dubnyk's 25 after the Minnesota Wild beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-3 on Saturday.

Dubnyk improved to 25-8-3 with five shutouts and an outstanding .935 save percentage after this victory. In this instance, he can thank his goal support in Minnesota, which seems to have been picking up lately. Dubnyk has a strong chance of exceeding his career-best of 36 wins, set in his breakthrough 2014-15 campaign between the Coyotes and Wild.
Jan 22 - 2:02 AM

Minnesota recalled Kurtis Gabriel on Saturday from AHL Iowa.

The 23-year-old has picked up a helper and 34 PIMs in 14 career NHL games. Down on the farm meanwhile he has posted six goals and seven points along with 40 PIMs in 25 games.
Jan 21 - 6:36 PM

Nate Prosser will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Prosser has suited up just five times since Dec. 11th, and has played in only 18 games overall this season. He has two points with 18 hits and 26 blocks.
Jan 21 - 4:44 PM

Mike Reilly will be on the blue line against the Ducks on Saturday.

Reilly's second twirl through the NHL hasn't quite gone as hoped, as he's still searching for his first points of the campaign with the Wild. He does have 15 points in 29 games for AHL Iowa this season, however.
Jan 21 - 4:10 PM

Devan Dubnyk will play against Anaheim on Saturday.

The Great Wall of St. Paul has begun to show a few cracks lately over his last eight starts. Though he's posted a 6-2 record over that time, he's allowed four goals in a goal four times with another having allowed a trio. He has an .894 save percentage during the span, but we'd still feel good about playing him tonight.
Jan 21 - 12:32 PM

Zach Parise hasn't registered a point in his last five games.

His last point was an assist against the Ducks back on Jan. 8. It's been a disappointing year for Parise, who has 20 points in 35 games this season. He could bounce back in the second half of the year, we just wouldn't count on it.
Jan 21 - 10:22 AM

Nino Niederreiter has found the back of the net five times in his last five games.

Niederreiter has two multi-goal efforts during that span, including in Thursday's game against the Arizona Coyotes. The Wild forward is on pace to surpass the 20-goal mark for the third consecutive season. He has 14 goals and 31 points in 44 games in 2016-17.
Jan 21 - 10:16 AM

Eric Staal had four shots and a goal in a 4-3 win against Arizona on Thursday night.

He scored his 16th goal of the season and reached the 40-point mark in his 44th game with the Wild. Staal has enjoyed a great bounce-back season in Minnesota after he registered 39 points in 83 combined games with Carolina and the New York Rangers last year.
Jan 20 - 9:53 AM

Jason Pominville amassed three assists in Thursday's 4-3 win over Arizona.

He manned the point on the power play due to Jonas Brodin's injury and accounted for two points on the man advantage in Thursday's victory. Pominville has collected one goal and six assists in his last seven outings.
Jan 20 - 9:49 AM

Devan Dubnyk allowed three goals on 23 shots in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Dubnyk has now won five of his last six games, but he's allowed three goals or more in half of those contests. He has a 24-8-3 record with a 1.88 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage. He's one of the top candidates for the Vezina Trophy at this point of the season.
