  • Gamethread: Wild vs. Blue Jackets (7:00 p.m.)


    The Minnesota Wild are suiting up against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first half of a weekend back-to-back.

    It also just so happens to be the debut of Marc-Andre Fleury, the legendary goaltender that the Wild traded for at the NHL Trade Deadline. Dmitry Kulikov will be playing in place of Jon Merrill, after the former was a healthy scratch for the first time this season on Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks. With the addition of Jacob Middleton at the deadline as well, this has created a little bit of a shift on the blue line that will get sorted before the post-season.

    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
    Dmitry Kulikov—Alex Goligoski

    Marc-Andre Fleury is in net for your Minnesota Wild.

    Projected Blue Jackets lineup:

    Gustav Nyquist—Jack Roslivic—Patrik Laine
    Jakub Voracek—Cole Sillinger—Oliver Bjorkstrand
    Eric Robinson—Sean Kuraly—Justin Danforth
    Emil Bemstrom—Brendan Gaunce—Yegor Chinakhov

    Zach Werenski—Andrew Peeke
    Vladislav Gavrikov—Jake Bean
    Dean Kukan—Adam Boqvist

    Elvis Merzlikins will be starting for Columbus.
