TSN finally updated their power rankings.
This Week 19 / Last Week 24 / Minnesota Wild7-6-2
Sunday's comeback win against Detroit, in G Darcy Kuemper's second NHL start, was Minnesota's first regulation win in February, but they're still 3-1-1 in their last five.
Still ranked behind Edmonton
Russo also has a new blog/story thing
Josh Harding, sidelined as he tries to get accustomed to new medication to treat multiple sclerosis, hasn't skated with the team since Thursday.
If it looks as if Larsson will be a healthy scratch in Edmonton, General Manager Chuck Fletcher indicated he might reassign him to Houston.
After Sunday's victory, Yeo said what turned the game is the Wild getting "ticked off" after falling behind 2-0.
"That has to be there every night," Yeo said. "We have to play the game with an edge. Taking straight lines and getting there in a bad mood. That has to be part of who we are. It's more than just finishing checks. It's the stick battles, hard play with the puck, blocking shots."
That theme continued in Tuesday's practice when Yeo stopped a drill and snapped at the Wild for not playing with purpose on the forecheck.
There's more there about Kuemper, Brodin, and Larsson going shopping together and a few more quotes from Kuemper. A bit on the sick players as well.
