The Minnesota Wild are slowly climbing their way back into a playoff spot and now have to visit the Pittsburgh Penguins amid some small controversy. John Hynes has decided to not have Marc-Andre Fleury in between the pipes for what could be his last game in Pittsburgh. But, many reporters are already saying it will certainly not be his last game and it was always the plan to have Filip Gustavsson against the top-heavy Pittsburgh offense.
Well, whatever you think, the Wild need to get as many points as they can and Gustavsson starting to look like the Vezina contender he was last season.
