Continued: Wild ponders how to keep Granlund healthy

Cautious approach

After being hit in the head by Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin on Monday, Nino Niederreiter didn’t play Thursday against the Blackhawks.

“It’d be silly on our part to rush him back,” Yeo said. “We don’t want him to come back for one period and then lose him for three weeks here.

“Let’s just make sure we approach this with a bit of caution toward making sure we have him back and healthy for good.”

That meant Dany Heatley, scratched the previous two games, returned to the lineup and played on a fourth line with Stephane Veilleux and Jake Dowell, who made his season debut.

 

Etc.

• With Darcy Kuemper now hurt, Ilya Bryzgalov became the fourth Wild goalie to start against Chicago in five meetings this season. The Wild has started four goalies in four games against St. Louis.

“Trying to keep them guessing,” said Yeo, jokingly.

• Defenseman Keith Ballard missed his ninth game because of a groin injury.
