Continued: Wild's Koivu uncertain for Team Finland in Olympics

“Until I do that consistently, I may be up and down. Lately I’ve been focusing on that a lot.”

With Calgary one of those “heavy” teams, Rupp played against the Flames and Torrey Mitchell, who has one goal in 53 games, was scratched for the first time this season.

“I’m not taking Fonzie [Justin Fontaine] out, so somebody has to come out,” Yeo said.

Competition at D

Defenseman Jared Spurgeon’s return is on hold. He missed his 14th consecutive game Saturday because of a foot injury, meaning a likely return Tuesday.

“We would have had a tough decision [who to take out] if he was coming into the lineup,” Yeo said. “Guys have elevated their game. Stony’s [Clayton Stoner] playing a physical game, Bally’s [Keith Ballard] has taken his game to another level and Pross [Nate Prosser], we’ve seen what he’s come in and done.”

Yeo said all three probably sense the return of Spurgeon and have lifted their game knowing one of them will come out.

“That’s probably part of it,” Yeo said. “They go into every game making sure they’re ready to go and making sure they have that urgency.”
