|The Jets are working on a four game win streak and three-straight shootout wins. Though head coach Claude Noel has rolled the same lineup during the streak, the Jets lost defenseman Zach Bogosian Friday to a lower-body injury.
Winnipeg is led by centerman Bryan Little who has a team-leading 11 goals on the season and 18 points (11-7=18). He scored the Jets' lone goal the last time the team played in St. Paul.
|With only a seven hour car ride between St. Paul and Winnipeg it's a safe bet plenty of Jets fans will be in attendance once again. Last time they made themselves heard with chants of "Go Jets Go!" Instead of booing, drown them out with "Go Wild!" It sounds more encouraging from the ice.
The Wild will wear its GREEN sweaters tonight.
|While there's a few guys to pick from, Zach Parise and Jason Pominville have been duking it out lately. Parise has eight points in the last seven games and leads the Wild with 17 points this season. Meanwhile Pominville picked up a goal and an assist Friday night for his fourth multi-point game of the season. He has 13 points in his last 11 games and trails Parise with 16 points this season.
Fans can guess who's going to be hot with the Wild's HotBox Fantasy Challenge presented by the Pioneer Press for a chance to win great prizes.
|The Wild lines remain the same as Friday:
Matt Dumba will step in on the blue line:
Josh Harding has been one of the best netminders in the NHL this season. Harding is 11-2-2 and is 8-0-2 in his last ten games. He ranks first in the League with a 1.26 goals-against average and second with a .945 save percentage.
|He's played well against these guys. We just want to see him continue to evovle and continue to grow. He's in here for a reason. I want to see his strengths come out in the game.
-Yeo on Dumba playing tonight
|Nate Prosser will be the lone healthy scratch.
Defenseman Keith Ballard is on Injured Reserve with an upper-body injury and goaltender Niklas Backstrom is out with an upper-body injury.
|Devin Setoguchi collected 63 points (32-31=63) in 117 games with Minnesota (2011-13). He was traded to Winnipeg for a 2014 second-round pick (7/5/13). Mark Stuart is from Rochester. Blake Wheeler hails from Robbinsdale and went to the University of Minnesota (2005-08).||The Wild has a 9-1-2 record at home this season, with five-straight wins at Xcel Energy Center with nine wins in its last ten games. No NHL team has more wins or points on home ice than the Wild this season.|
|Wild vs. Winnipeg will be broadcast locally in high definition on FOX Sports North with a start time at 7:00 p.m. The game can be heard on KFAN 100.3 FM or online at Wild.com.||
