Wild update for game against Lightning

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild pregame skate Updated: April 2, 2011 - 11:13 AM

No pregame access, but the word up here at least right now is Brent Burns will play against the Tampa Bay Lightning but Marek Zidlicky and Nick Schultz will not. Cam Barker is also out.

Maxim Noreau will play his second NHL game and first-ever at home. Justin Falk will also play.

Niklas Backstrom vs. Dwayne Roloson is the expected goaltending matchup.
