  • Gamethread, Lineups, and More: Wild at Canadiens (6:00 p.m.)


    This game will be notable for a couple reasons. First, it is the first game with a brand-new Minnesota Wild lineup that features some top-end talent getting more of an opportunity and some breaking-up of long-standing forward lines. Second, it is just the second time this season that the Wild will be facing a “bad” team, and the other time (against the Vancouver Canucks) they were able to get their only win of the season.

    Wild at Canadiens

    When: 6:00 p.m. CT
    Where: Bell Centre
    Radio: KFAN 100.3 FM

    Maybe it’s just hard to start your season against a bunch of teams that should be in the playoffs, but the Wild deserve to beat up on someone and maybe it’s the Montreal Canadiens tonight.

    Projected Wild lineup:

    Kirill Kaprizov — Frederick Gaudreau — Mats Zuccarello
    Marcus Foligno — Marco Rossi — Matt Boldy
    Brandon Duhaime — Joel Eriksson Ek — Ryan Hartman
    Tyson Jost — Sam Steel — Connor Dewar/Mason Shaw

    Jake Middleton — Jared Spurgeon
    Jonas Brodin — Calen Addison
    Jon Merrill — Matt Dumba

    Marc Andre Fleury will be in net.

    Projected Canadiens lineup:

    Cole Caufield — Nick Suzuki — Sean Monahan
    Evgenii Dadonov — Christian Dvorak — Brendan Gallagher
    Jonathan Drouin — Kirby Dach — Josh Anderson
    Rem Pitlick — Jake Evans — Mike Hoffman/Michael Pezzetta

    Kaiden Guhle — David Savard
    Johnathan Kovecevic — Jordan Harris
    Arber Xhekaj — Chris Wideman

    Jake Allen will be in between the pipes for the home team.
