It’s been a long time coming for Minnesota Wild forward Matt Cooke.

The 36-year-old returned to practice for the first time in more than a month and a half, before the team departs for Chicago facing the Blackhawks tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. at the United Center. The wing has been sidelined with a lower-body injury, missing 19 games. Last year, he skated in all 82 of the team’s regular season games.

Cooke will not be in the lineup tomorrow, or Wednesday when the Wild returns home to host the Boston Bruins. However, today’s practice was a large step in what has been a lengthy road to recovery.

“It’s been a long process. A lot longer than anybody would’ve liked, especially myself,” Cooke said. “Today it felt awesome to get back with the guys.”

The Minnesota Wild believes it’s better than its current 15-11-1 record and 10th spot in the Western Conference standings indicates. However, the club needs to play up to its lofty standards. That was the message during today’s Wild practice in Glendale, Arizona at Gila River Arena before taking on the Arizona Coyotes tomorrow night at 7 p.m. State of Hockey Time.

“We’re tired of being on the cusp, tired of being close,” Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo said. “We need to demand better than what we’ve been brining.

“We’re better than what we’ve been showing, consistently.”

I’ll know my song well before I start singin’

— Bob Dylan, A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

With a Flash Flood Watch in the San Francisco Bay Area, a shorthanded Minnesota Wild defensive corps will again have to rise to the occasion against the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center. It’s been an all too familiar tune for the Wild in the early going this season, as the team again will be without a pair of contributing blueliners.

Marco Scandella will serve the first of a two-game suspension following an illegal check to the head against the New York Islanders’ Brock Nelson on Tuesday. It was the second hit of the season that was reviewed by the Department of Player Safety, the first coming the St. Louis Blues’ T.J. Oshie on Nov. 30, which warranted no suspension.
