Pominville returns to Wild lineup; Blackhawks get new father Keith back for game

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild right wing Jason Pominville has moved closer to returning to the lineup.

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.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
