Pominville returning tonight

Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild game coverage Updated: May 7, 2013 - 8:33 PM

Quick update from the X, where the Wild is getting ready to play host to Chicago in Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals.

Jason Pominville skated in the pregame warmups, and on the line rushes he was on a fourth line with Torrey Mitchell at center.  Stephane Veilleux was the other winger.

He will return for the first time since April 23 and start on that line. The goal is also for Pominville to aid a power play that is 0 for 9.

Jake Dowell would have slotted into that fourth line if Pominville couldn't go.

Pominville, out because of an upper body injury, probably a concussion, missed the final two games of the regular season and the first three games of this series.
