The big news of the afternoon was that Kuemper would make the start in net. This was followed up with Yeo confirming that Keith Ballard, who took a puck to the face and didn't return last night, would sit out with Mathew Dumba, while Prosser and Scandella would be in the game.

Here are the lineups for tonight:

Minnesota Wild
Toronto Maple Leafs

Zach Parise - Mikko Koivu - Nino Niederreiter
Dany Heatley - Mikael Granlund - Jason Pominville
Matt Cooke - Kyle Brodziak - Justin Fontaine
Stephane Veilleux - Zenon Konopka - Torrey Mitchell

Ryan Suter - Jonas Brodin
Marco Scandella - Jared Spurgeon
Nate Prosser - Clayton Stoner

Darcy Kuemper - Josh Harding

Joffery Lupal - Tyler Bozak - Phill Kessel
Mason Raymond - Dave Bolland - Jay McClement
Carter Ashton - Nazem Kardi - Josh Leivo
Colton Orr - Trevor Smith - Troy Bodie

Dion Phaneuf - Carl Gunnerson
Morgan Reilly - Cody Franson
Paul Ranger - Jake Gardiner

James Reimer - Jonathan Bernier


Five Questions

1. Kuemper makes his first NHL start of the season. Can the sunshine kid show Wild fans what those of us who have watched the Aeros see?

2. Ballard and Dumba are out for the night. Can Prosser and Scandella step up and fill the voids?

3. The Wild powerplay has been pretty good, and the penalty kill has started to shape up. How does the special teams play look?

4. There was a lot of national love for the Wild last night. Can the team continue to play in a way that makes other fanbases take notice?

5.The Wild fell a little in the advanced stats area last night. Can they pick it up tonight against a team that has been playing pretty well themselves?
