“[Zucker] knows he can play better than what he is, and I have no doubt he will get his game back in order,” Fletcher said. “There’s a possibility he plays games in the NHL and AHL this year. It’s going to be up to him. But there’s no doubt he’s going to be a really good player in this league.”

Defenseman Jared Spurgeon scored a first-period power-play goal Friday and the Wild clung to that for two periods until the Blues rallied on goals by T.J. Oshie, Patrik Berglund, David Backes and Chris Stewart in the third. The four goals were scored on Johan Gustafsson, who replaced Josh Harding after he stopped all 15 shots he saw through two periods but left because he said he wasn’t feeling well.
