Top combos debut

Parise doesn’t like watching games from the stands, even in the preseason. That’s why last season’s leading scorer for the Wild is excited to make his preseason debut Saturday night against the Winnipeg Jets with linemates Mikko Koivu and Jason Pominville.

No. 1 defense pair Ryan Suter and Jonas Brodin also will play for the first time. Veterans Dany Heatley, Clayton Stoner, Keith Ballard and Niklas Backstrom are expected to play as well.

But all eyes will be on the Parise-Koivu-Pominville line to see if it can carry its impressive chemistry in practices and scrimmages into an exhibition game.

“All three of us are [excited],” Parise said. “We’re getting better and better. We’re moving the puck well and learning more and more about each other.

“Ultimately, it only matters how we do in the games. [Saturday] will be our first test. If it doesn’t go well, there’s no need to panic. We’ve just got to keep developing some familiarity with each other.”
