‘Twas the day before holiday break, when all through Xcel Energy Center, the Wild was stirring, practicing to score a game winner.

The Wild looks to head into the holiday break with visions of sugar-plums dancing in their heads, tonight hosting the Philadelphia Flyers. After two-consecutive overtime losses, the Wild will shake things up before taking three days off.

Forward Mikael Granlund will return to the lineup after missing Saturday’s 6-5 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators. Granlund was expected to go and participated in warmups, but was feeling ill and didn’t play. He skipped yesterday’s practice for an extra day of rest.

Like Santa’s elves, the Minnesota Wild has been putting in overtime in its games leading up to Christmas. In the club’s first 27 contests, the team skated beyond regulation just four times. In its last four games, the Wild has played more than 60 minutes three times.

While Minnesota has secured victory in only one of its recent OT games, a 4-3 shootout win against the Arizona Coyotes on Dec. 13, the team has showed its resolve in the third period. In its last two games against the Boston Bruins and Nashville Predators, the Wild has tied the contest in the third period to force overtime and earn an extra point.

“I give our guys a lot of credit. Again, it is tough to be battling back all the time,” Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo said. “I am pleased that our guys continue to battle back, and that shows something to me, but now let’s make sure not to put ourselves in that position so many times.”

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.”
