The Minnesota Wild closes out a four-game road trip tonight against the Calgary Flames. Calgary is red hot on home ice, winning its past four games at the Scotiabank Saddledome. This will be the only game the Wild will play in Calgary this season and second of three meetings against the Flames. Minnesota has found success here recently, going 8-4-0 in its last 12 games.

At the start of today’s Minnesota Wild practice at the Scotiabank Saddledome, Wild Head Coach acknowledged that Zach Parise was named captain and Ryan Suter an alternate captain of the United States Olympic team. The club gave a rousing stick tap, hockey’s equivalent to a standing ovation.

After a day off yesterday, the Minnesota Wild had a “work disguised as fun,” practice in Anaheim, as Head Coach Mike Yeo put it.

The Minnesota Wild embarks on its third West Coast road trip of the season, arriving in San Jose today. The Wild’s four-game roadie will be challenging, kicking things off against the Sharks (33-12-6: 72 pts., fourth in the West) tomorrow.

After flying out from Minnesota this morning, the team headed straight to HP Pavilion for practice—not the Lighthouse’s dream scenario since the local temp is around 66 degrees and we’ve been suffering from a severe vitamin D deficiency thanks to the polar vortex holding the State of Hockey hostage.

Zach Parise was full of smiles as he spoke in the locker room after the Wild’s optional morning skate and it wasn’t because one of the local reports asked him about the Team USA Olympic opening ceremony outfit.

Parise will re-enter the lineup tonight as the Wild hosts the Chicago Blackhawks at Xcel Energy Center. The forward was initially injured when he blocked a shot against the St. Louis Blues on Nov. 25. He missed the next game and battled through 12 games, before going on Injured Reserve on Dec. 23.

Though Hockey Day Minnesota 2014 is (sadly) behind us, it didn’t stop the Wild from cracking jokes about Nate Prosser’s overtime heroics Saturday night.
