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.
It's a tribute to him, and everything he's done and deserved is coming to fruition tonight with his jersey in the rafters. He's going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. And I said today, if he's not, take my stuff out. If he doesn't deserve to be in there first ballot, no one does. Except for (Wayne) Gretzky, I guess.
