  • Gamethread: Wild vs. Avalanche (5:00 p.m.)


    Just 24 hours after pulling off yet another come-from-behind win against the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Minnesota Wild are facing the NHL’s top team in the Colorado Avalanche. It will be a very tough opponent regardless of the potential impact of fatigue, but at least the team didn’t have to travel for this one.

    Tyson Jost and Nico Sturm are facing each other since their one-for-one swap in between these two clubs, as well.

    Projected Wild lineup:

    Kirill Kaprizov—Ryan Hartman—Mats Zuccarello
    Kevin Fiala—Frederick Gaudreau—Matt Boldy
    Jordan Greenway—Joel Eriksson Ek—Marcus Foligno
    Brandon Duhaime—Tyson Jost—Nicolas Deslauriers

    Jonas Brodin—Matt Dumba
    Jacob Middleton—Jared Spurgeon
    Jon Merrill—Alex Goligoski

    Cam Talbot will get the start tonight since Marc-Andre Fleury got it yesterday.

    Projected Avalanche lineup:

    Valeri Nichushkin—Nathan MacKinnon—Mikko Rantanen
    Andre Burakovsky—Nazem Kadri—J.T. Compher
    Alex Newhook—Nico Sturm—Logan O’Connor
    Andrew Cogliano—Darren Helm—Nicolas Aube-Kubel

    Devon Toews—Cale Makar
    Jack Johnson—Josh Manson
    Kurtis MacDermid—Erik Johnson

    Darcy Kuemper is probably going to be Colorado’s starter.
