Time to get set with the lineup. Michael Russo expects this to be the Wild's starting lineup (if all are healthy)

Jacques Lemaire will play his regular lineup for the first time this camp in the team’s final exhibition game tonight (minus injured Marek Zidlicky).
The big news is Marc-Andre Bergeron will play tonight with two black eyes and a broken nose. Lemaire didn’t think he could last night.
The other notable thing? Boogaard is out for Gillies. Get used to this if the Wild is healthy, I believe.
