ST. PAUL, Minn. -- With both teams in action last night, neither team skated Sunday morning at Xcel Energy Center.
Both squads won Saturday, so look for minimal changes to the lineup. The Wild will go with Josh Harding in goal, while Dallas coach Glen Gulutzan has indicated he was leaning towards inserting Cristopher Nilstorp. If he does, it would mark his first career National Hockey League start.
Wild fourth line center Zenon Konopka received 30 stitches to his nose last night after taking a high stick to the face in the second period against Colorado. He tweeted a picture after the game and said he'd be ready to go Sunday.
We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
