Help from Houston

With the Houston Aeros eliminated from the AHL playoffs, the Wild can recall any player it wants. As of now, Stephane Veilleux, Jake Dowell and Mikael Granlund have been recalled.

Veilleux, who has played 460 NHL regular-season games, played his 12th career playoff game for the Wild. He logged 7 minutes, 57 seconds of ice time and had three hits. Dowell and Granlund were scratched.

Before the game, Yeo said he inserted Veilleux because “you look back at the game and we have opportunities to finish checks on a guy like [Duncan] Keith and we’re not taking those opportunities. We have to understand it’s more than just that play. It’s about investing in the series and making sure that every time they’re going to touch a puck that they know that you’re coming.”

Etc.

• The Wild outhit Chicago 34-13 Sunday.

• Jason Pominville and Clayton Stoner missed games because of injuries, while Zenon Konopka, Brett Clark and Nate Prosser were scratched.

• Defenseman Ryan Suter logged 32:23 — his second-highest total in three games. Rookie Jonas Brodin logged 28:26.

• Brodziak’s assist on Bouchard’s goal was his first career playoff point.

• Koivu went 15-for-20 on faceoffs, tying Darby Hendrickson’s 2003 team record for most faceoff wins in a playoff game.
