Darcy Kuemper, who missed six games with a concussion but backed up last night in Dallas, will see his first action since Dec. 22 when the Wild hosts the New Jersey Devils tonight.
Kuemper went 4-0-2 with a 1.26 goals-against average, .947 save percentage and one shutout last month before getting hurt. Devan Dubnyk, who started the past eight games, gets a rare night off.
Same Wild lineup tonight, meaning Chris Porter is a healthy scratch for the second consecutive game and Nate Prosser will miss his fourth game with a hand injury.
Defenseman Mike Reilly will make his home debut after making his NHL debut in last night's win.
The Devils are the only team in the NHL left wing Zach Parise hasn’t scored a goal against. In three games against the team he once captained, Parise has three assists and 12 shots.
Talk tonight after the game.
