Parise returns to Wild lineup vs. Avalanche

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise returned to the lineup Friday against the Colorado Avalanche, four days after injuring his left foot blocking a shot in a loss to the St. Louis Blues.

The Wild announced Tuesday that Parise was expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a contusion on his left foot, but Parise skated the next two days and was declared ready to go after getting through warm-ups Friday.

Parise, the Wild's leading scorer with 11 goals and 22 points, took his spot on the first line with Charlie Coyle and Mikko Koivu.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
