Right wing Jason Pominville returned from injury and Jake Dowell, a former Blackhawks player, is centering the Wild's fourth line. Torrey Mitchell, who centered that line for Game 3, moves to right wing. Mike Rupp, who skated four shifts Sunday, was scratched.
Pominville was considered a game-time decision, according to Wild coach Mike Yeo.
"Just doing my best to get back to where I need to be," Pominville said at the morning skate. "I'm heading in the right direction, that's for sure."
"It's been tough," Pominville said of not being on the ice. "It's not easy. It's been a tough rehab, a few things have gone different ways."
Pominville said he skated on his own and out of the media's eye for a few days prior, but absorbed contact during the morning's skate.
