Almond, Falk in for Cullen, Spurgeon

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild news Updated: February 5, 2011 - 6:13 PM

Lineup updates for tonight's game at Phoenix:

Matt Cullen thought he'd play this morning. He won't. He's got an upper-body injury and the team's probably being cautious since he'll have four days to recover before Wednesday's game against Colorado.

So Cody Almond will play his fifth game of the season and first since Nov. 12. John Madden is in.

Also, Cam Barker is in, but Jared Spurgeon, who did skate this morning, is sick. So Justin Falk will play his first game since Nov. 27.
