Wild Top Line Set To Skate Against Jets
The Minnesota Wild is expected roll out its top line and D-pair tomorrow night when the club concludes a home-and-home series with the Winnipeg Jets at Xcel Energy Center. The Wild took the first game of the series in Winnipeg on Thursday, 4-1.
Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu and Jason Pominville will see their first preseason action tomorrow night against the Jets. The line has looked good in practice and scrimmage, but tomorrow will be the first test.
Remaining intact from from last season, a surprise to no one, is the team's top pair of Ryan Suter and Jonas Brodin. The blueliners will see their first preseason action tomorrow as well.
The Lighthouse will have more on tomorrow night's lineup as it becomes available.
Stay up late or set your DVR's because yesterday's Wild win against the Jets will re-air on the NHL Network at 1 a.m. The Lighthouse was in Winnipeg yesterday, so we'll be resting up for tomorrow night's tilt and if it is anything like the first game of the series, you won't want to miss it.
Every Wild preseason game broadcast on FM 100.3, The Fan, and the audio will be streamed on Wild.com. @mnwildLIVE will live tweet the action and Wild.com will provide a game recap.
