The Minnesota Wild are injured. Very injured. But that won’t stop them from playing games against one of the top teams in the NHL, as they are facing the Washington Capitals tonight.

As for who will play for the home team, it’s not looking too pretty aside from the hot prospects.

Lines:

Fiala - Hartman - Zuccarello
Foligno - Rossi - Boldy
Dewar - Sturm - Gaudreau
Rau - Rask - Pitlick

Benn - Dumba
Merrill - Kulikov
Mermis - Addison

Kaapo Kahkonen is going to be in between the pipes.

Alex Goligoski was a late addition to the COVID protocol list, joining Brandon Duhaime and Jordan Greenway.

In addition to the COVID players, Jared Spurgeon and Joel Eriksson Ek should be back before the month ends. But that’s it for the good news. Jonas Brodin and Kirill Kaprizov will be out for at least this week, and potentially long-term.

Ah,

Anyways, join us in the comments to talk about Boldy and Rossi playing together.
