Gamethread: Wild at Rangers (7:00 p.m.)

It’s Henrik night.

The Minnesota Wild are hopefully going to rain on the proverbial parade as the New York Rangers celebrate the legendary career of Henrik Lundqvist.

They can have the pre-game ceremonies and all that feel-good nonsense, but please, when the puck is dropped, maybe former Lundqvist teammate Mats Zuccarello will net a couple points.

One special bonus is that Jonas Brodin is returning to the lineup after missing a significant amount of time with an injury. And of course, since the Wild cannot have a fully healthy roster, Jon Merrill and Nico Sturm are out and in COVID protocol.

The lineup is probably going to look a little something like this:

Kaprizov - Hartman - Zuccarello
Greenway - Eriksson Ek - Foligno
Boldy - Gaudreau - Fiala
Dewar - Rask - Duhaime

Brodin - Dumba
Goligoski - Spurgeon
Benn - Kulikov

And Cam Talbot is getting the start for his second consecutive night since returning from injury and performing well against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday.
