Line changes

Star Tribune Minnesota Wild beat guy Michael Russo is reporting that Martin Havlat and Matt Cullen have not meshed the way the team would have liked coming into the season.

We all know that Havlat and Cullen have been productive together on the power-play.

However, the duo has failed to produce a 5-on-5 goal when on a line together.

So, Havlat is now with Eric Nystrom and Jon Madden. He’s had four assists in the last two games with the new linemates.

Cullen has still played well with new guys rotating in-and-out on his line. He has 14 points in 16 games.

“You’re trying to find Marty (Havlat) and Cullen some complements that’ll work,” Wild coach Todd Richards told Russo.

We’ll see if things can continue to go well for both Havlat and Cullen as the season progresses.
