This isn't going to be an easy game for the Minnesota Wild, who's facing the Tampa Bay Lightning for its last game before the Christmas break. As a matter of fact, Tampa won eight of its last nine contests, and 24-year-old forward Nikita Kucherov was the first player to reach 50 points this season.
Head coach Bruce Boudreau revealed his official lineup for tonight's match:
Zucker - Staal - Stewart
Foligno - Koivu - Granlund
Winnik - Coyle - Eriksson Ek
Ennis - Cullen - Mitchell
Suter - Dumba
Brodin - Spurgeon
Reilly - Prosser
