From Russo:

Marian Gaborik skated with the Wild yesterday for the first time since December, but today technically was his first practice. Yesterday was just a morning skate. Today was practice, man. And even at 60 or 70 percent, Gaborik’s the Wild’s best player — or at least scorer. He had some pretty sweet goals today.

Questions to Answer

  1. This is a playoff game. Will the Wild treat it as such?
    Which offense shows up?
    Will we get the Backstrom from the Colorado game?
    Will John Scott continue to keep Foster off the ice?
    Who is going to spark the offense tonight?
