Stats analysis by MVN's Theresa Ferries



Wild player to watch: Marian Gaborik - 26 goals and 53 points.





Lineups: (projected)


Rick Nash - Jiri Novotny - Jared Boll
Jason Chimera - Michael Peca - Nikolai Zherdev
Gilbert Brule - Derick Brassard - Dan Fritsche
Andrew Murray - Manny Malhotra - David Vyborny

Adam Foote - Jan Hejda
Rostislav Klesla - Ron Hainsey
Ole-Kristian Tollefsen - Kris Russell
Tarnstrom?

Steady Freddy Norrena (per Puckrakers)


Aaron Voros – Pavol Demitra – Marian Gaborik
Pierre-Marc Bouchard – Eric Belanger – Brian Rolston
Stephane Veilleux – Mikko Koivu – Mark Parrish
Derek Boogaard – James Sheppard – Todd Fedoruk

Nick Schultz – Kim Johnsson
Kurtis Foster – Sean Hill
Martin Skoula – Brent Burns

Niklas Backstrom




Injuries

Modin has a hamstring tear, suffered in the second period Tuesday vs. Phoenix. He's out a week to 10 days, meaning he'll miss at least the next five games, probably more than that. Tough season for the Big Swede.

Fedorov skated by himself this morning and developed a headache. So, he'll take a couple of days off and try to gear back up again. He's out for Saturday, for sure, and probably Tuesday vs. Washington, too.


1/31/2008 Derek Boogaard Back IR
1/31/2008 Mark Parrish Bruised Foot Day to Day


Tommy's keys to the game:

1. Stop Gaborik, he's deadly with the puck and is faster than our skaters.
2. We desperately need some secondary scoring after Rick & Nik.
3. I think we need to win the special teams battle, they're top 10 in both PP and PK.
4. Don't let them get the lead, Backstrom is now 26-0-0 in his career when the Wild lead after 40 minutes.


Other key games on Saturday
Coyotes vs Predators
Avalanche at St. Louis

As Sam Cooke sang "A change is gonna come". The last two games are behind us.



Give the home crowd something to cheer about, boys.

(Yes I know it's a stretch to connect the two, but I've been listening to the man nonstop lately for whatever reason.)

This game is an absolute must-win. At home A 3-game losing streak will really knock the wind out of us. We've gotta show that we have what it takes to be a serious contender. And from the rumors tonight's game will be the highest attendance all year at Nationwide. Give the crowd a win, boys.

38 points in 29 games, making the math easy we need to go 19-10, or a little worse than 2 wins for 1 loss. It's time to start grouping games in 3s. Beat the Wild and Coyotes (Thursday) with a potential loss to the Caps on Tuesday, and we'll be on track. Follow that up with a (potential) loss to San Jose and victories against the Kings and Blackhawks, and we'll still be on track.

We need Nash to step up and start playing like he's capable of playing. I don't know about you guys but I'm tired of Nash performing like an All-Star some games and then not making any impact at all in the other games. Zherdev has been picking up some of the slack, but "your best players have to be your best players" and that includes Nash and Vybs and Peca and Foote.

2-1 in the next 3 games boys, that's all I ask.

Also, from what I hear (can't recall where) Tarnstrom can't play yet with the Jackets because of an immigration issue - something about being a Swedish citizen for the US passport, or something. I can't recall where I saw it, sorry.

No Tarnstrom for a few games, just like Hejda at the start of preseason camp he'll still need his immigration papers to be cleared before he can play that's per Portzline

TimelessWinter,

I hope the shakeup here means good karma, because I will be at the game and I want to see a win. We HAVE to end this skid.

Is there any recourse than a win? Nope. Crunch time for our veterans......

I'm attending this one tonight. Hope you're wrong, Matt, but I know this team is perfectly capable of a 3-game skid, and that's what makes me nervous. I see this as a two goal win for either team, with the final goal being an empty-netter.

EDIT: Forgot to comment on the fantastic GDT, Timeless. Great job!

The good news is that Wes Walz and his PRESTIDIGITORY BREEZERS won't score on us tonight.

Ahhhhh, hope springs eternal.

Hopefully this game is a sellout. We're long overdue for one, and I think this franchise needs it.

That being said, Jackets 4-0. The large crowd propels them to a dominating effort.

If we want to stop the couple Demitra-Gáborík, a line who will play against them has to play like Czech representation against Slovakia.

Our probable roster:

Nash - Peca - Žerdev
Chimera - Novotný - Výborný
Fritsche - Brassard - Brulé

Murray - Malhotra - Boll

I am inquisitive on these lines.

I actually like these lines. Nash needs some talent to play with. So does Z. I realize this puts most of our eggs in one basket but we need to get these guys going.

The only line that concerns me is Brassards. That line seems defensively challenged and obviously very young. It has skill, energy and some power so who knows. I'd love to see it succeed and get Brule and Fritsche that magic 12-14 min per game.


LETS GO JACKETS.... 3-2 good guys!
