The Minnesota Wild Head to the American Airlines Center in Big D where they've historically struggled. No Zach Parise on the trip and the Wild are still missing Jonas Brodin and Marco Scandella to mumps-like illness. Christian Folin was sent down I-35 to Des Moines following Thursday's game. Speaking of Thursday's game, Darcy Kuemper looks to regain his form after being pulled after allowing two goals on two shots in the first period to Buffalo.

Head Coach Mike Yeo will go with the line combos that worked on Thursday, that included Nino Niederreiter scoring a hat trick.

For the Stars, Kari Lehtonen will try avoiding getting in Erik Haula's way. He will play his 14th game of the season, going 6-3-4 going into Saturday. Tyler Seguin leads the Stars with 22 points and 12 goals on the season. A person to keep an eye on today will be Antoine Roussel, who has 43 penalty minutes and is a known antogonist.

Likely lines should be:
