Continued: Wild shuts out Edmonton in return from Olympic break

The Oilers played a physical game, but the Wild defended well, and its defensemen were willing to take hits to make plays.

“We got back to what we do best — defending well, getting the puck north and winning one-on-one battles,” said Prosser.

Defenseman Clayton Stoner particularly showed toughness when he dislocated his left ring finger in a fight with Luke Gazdic in the second. The finger bent left, a sight even Yeo called “gruesome.”

But doctors got it back into place, and after taping it with his middle finger, Stoner played the third period.

“Probably looked worse than it felt,” Stoner said.
