After a big win in Dallas last night, Minnesota completes their back-back tonight at the X against Winnipeg. Zach Parise was activated from the IR earlier this morning! Considering he only missed five games, it sounds like the injury was not as serious as we all presumed. Jonas Brodin was placed on the IR to make room for Parise. Brodin should be back soon whenever he is able to get rid of this disgusting mumps virus that has taken the NHL by storm.
Niklas Backstrom should be receiving the nod between the pipes tonight/today. (Puck drop is at 4pm tonight so its whatever your prefer) Check back at 3:45 for the gamethread as im sure Yeo will be shuffling the lines with Parise returning. (winky face)
