Wild can't let injury frustrations mount

Parise's fractured sternum just the latest in a mountain of injuries to key players

by Dan Myers @DanMyers / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- Over the course of an 82-game regular season, and good fortune willing, a Stanley Cup Playoff run, any team will have to overcome its fair share of injuries along the way.

The most frustrating part for the Wild this season has been the sheer number of injuries to core parts of its roster.

Whether it was Zach Parise missing half of the season following a microdiscectomy operation, Mikael Granlund missing time early on because of a groin injury, Charlie Coyle or Nino Niederreiter with their leg injuries, Jonas Brodin because of a broken hand or Jared Spurgeon because of groin and hamstring injuries, Minnesota was forced to play a vast majority of its season without the lineup coach Bruce Boudreau preferred coming out of training camp.

ST. PAUL -- The Wild accomplished its goal of getting back into its First Round Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Winnipeg Jets with a win in Game 3. Now it will do what it can to draw even.
