Pominville took part in the team's morning skate on Tuesday before Game 4 of the first-round playoff series against Chicago. This was the second straight practice he was on the ice.
Pominville hasn't played since taking an elbow to the chin in a game against Los Angeles two weeks ago. He wasn't specific about his injury but said he's been feeling better. Wild coach Mike Yeo declined to declare Pominville in or out.
Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith was absent from the morning skate because his wife had a baby boy. Coach Joel Quenneville said Keith was expected back in time for the game.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
