From the Rink: Stalock in goal for Wild against Avalanche

Minnesota begins three-game stretch against Central foes on Black Friday

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- With three games in the next four days, the Wild will start Alex Stalock in goal for a Friday afternoon matinee against the Colorado Avalanche at Xcel Energy Center.

The start will be Stalock's fifth of the season and second of the week; the former Minnesota Duluth Bulldog made 40 saves in a 3-1 loss to the Capitals on Saturday in Washington.

Despite posting solid numbers in his game action this season, Stalock doesn't have the win-loss ledger to match it.

Veteran forward discusses game changes, charity and the importance of a good burger

by Kayleigh Jackson / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- Matt Cullen's return to Minnesota capped off the whirlwind finale of his career. He thought each of his past few seasons might be the year he hung up the skates. Instead, he won two more Stanley Cups before returning to his hometown team for one last go-round in a career that's spanned 20 years. 

Wild.com's Kayleigh Jackson asked Cullen a few questions about how the game has changed, his charity work and what the Virginia, Minnesota native loves about the State of Hockey.

ST. PAUL -- In the midst of a hectic stretch of games, Thanksgiving has brought the Wild home -- at least for a day or two.

Coming off a 5-4 win in Buffalo on Wednesday night, the Wild will play a Black Friday matinee against the Colorado Avalanche at Xcel Energy Center before hitting the road once again to play in St. Louis on Saturday.

The game begins a two-game road trip that continues Monday in Winnipeg and is the beginning of three-straight games against Central Division foes; the Wild has played just five games in the Central through the first eight-plus weeks of the regular season.

From the Rink: Pominville, Scandella (re)adjusting to life in Buffalo

Former Wild teammates now trying to help return Sabres to postseason

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers / Wild.com

BUFFALO -- Returning to western New York and the Buffalo Sabres was an easy transition for former Wild forward Jason Pominville, who along with Marco Scandella was traded to the Sabres in June in a deal that netted Minnesota forwards Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno.

Tonight, Pominville and Scandella will play against their former team when the Wild and Sabres tangle on the banks of Lake Erie at Key Bank Center in Buffalo. 

During an optional skate on Wednesday morning, both Pominville and Scandella visited with former teammates and support staff on the Minnesota side.
