It just is never going to end. Jared Spurgeon is now out for your Minnesota Wild after returning to the lineup for a total of three games, Marcus Foligno is now day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and Kirill Kaprizov, Jonas Brodin, Filip Gustavsson, and Mats Zuccarello, all remain out in various condition.
