The Wild will try to sweep the Golden Knights Wednesday at Xcel Energy Center with the same lineup that blanked Vegas 2-0 on Monday.
Puck drop is 6 p.m.
Kaapo Kahkonen will be back in net, vying for his eighth straight victory.
The goaltender can become just the eighth rookie to earn multiple wins in head-to-head starts against Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury in a single season. No one has accomplished this feat since 2011-12.
During his seven-game win streak, Kahkonen has a 1.42 goals-against average and .947 save percentage. His 26-save performance Monday was his first career shutout.
Forwards Ryan Hartman (lower-body injury) and Marcus Johansson (upper-body injury) are still sidelined, but they skated Wednesday morning, coach Dean Evason said.
Ahead of Monday's game, Evason moved Nick Bjugstad to center between Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello and that trio will remain intact. Same with the Zach Parise, Victor Rask and Kevin Fiala line.
"Obviously, Zuccarello and Kaprizov see each other so well," Evason said. "They play off each other, and we're looking for Bjugy to get to the net with his big body and create a little bit of a bang and crash down there a little bit – simplify a little bit in that area and get to the net. So, he's done that. We're happy with both lines how they set up."
Although Bjugstad had been lining up at wing, he's played center most of his life.
"I've been fortunate enough to get some wing here and there," he said. "Having that in my back pocket, it's good. You're able to move around, and obviously guys get injured and things change. I definitely feel comfortable there."

The Golden Knights are also 6-3 on the road this season.
