Early Wild practice update

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild practice Updated: February 8, 2013 - 12:13 PM

The Wild, losers of three in a row and preparing to host Nashville on Saturday night, is back at practice this afternoon in Mendota Heights.

Zach Parise isn't practicing today. Perhaps it's a maintenance day, but I'll get an update after practice.

The lines today:

Bouchard-Koivu-Coyle

Heatley-Granlund-Setoguchi

Cullen-Brodziak-Clutterbuck

Rupp-Konopka-Mitchell

Defensemen:

Suter-Brodin

Stoner-Gilbert

Falk-Prosser

Marco Scandella is the extra playing D with forward Matt Kassian. So it looks like Prosser gets back in after being scratched in six straight.
