With defenseman Brent Burns suspended the next two games, defenseman Marek Zidlicky, who's missed three games with a leg injury, will return tonight.
He skated in the Twin Cities yesterday morning and was able to get out on an evening flight. He arrived at the team hotel shortly before midnight.
Other than Burns and Pierre-Marc Bouchard, the Wild's not skating this morning due to the early game tonight (4 p.m. CT). Niklas Backstrom is expected to be in goal.
