NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Minnesota Wild Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

After a less than successful road trip through Western Canada, the Minnesota Wild are back tonight to play against the Montreal Canadiens at home. In addition, Luke Kunin is accompanying them for the first time since March, when he tore his ACL. If the lines remain the same as yesterday, Kunin will play on a line with Jordan Greenway and Joel Eriksson Ek.
