Preview: The Wild, 7-2-4 in its past 13, equaled its most lopsided victory in franchise history by trouncing the Islanders 6-0 on Tuesday. The Wild completes a three-game road trip (it’s 1-1 so far) and is 1-3-2 all-time at New Jersey. The desperate Devils are 8-2-1 in their past 11 at home.

Players to watch: The Wild’s Zach Parise-Mikael Granlund-Jason Pominville line has combined for 15 goals and 49 points in the past 14 games. Pominville is riding a six-game point streak. 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.
