C Mikko Koivu is coming off a three-assist game and is the leading scorer in Wild history (438 points). G Cory Schneider will start for New Jersey. The ex-Canuck is 6-5 all-time against Minnesota with a 2.21 goals-against average.

Numbers: Coach Mike Yeo hasn’t announced the starting goalie, but Ilya Bryzgalov is coming off a 36-save shutout and has a 2.07 GAA in 12 career games against the Devils.

Injuries: Wild F Jason Zucker (leg) is out. Devils D Adam Larsson (lower body) is out and C Ryan Carter (upper body) is doubtful.
