Wild vs. Panthers
Minnesota's lines:

Devin Setoguchi - Kyle Brodziak - Dany Heatley
Darroll Powe - Matt Cullen - Nick Johnson
Chad Rau - Erik Christensen - Cal Clutterbuck
Jed Ortmeyer - Warren Peters - Matt Kassian

Nick Schultz - Nate Prosser
Greg Zanon - Marek Zidlicky
Marco Scandella - Jared Spurgeon

Nik Backstrom in goal


With the lack of depth we had last year after injuries, every line was basically a shut-down line. We had no offense to speak of, and our defense - believe it or not - was even worse.
