Matt Cullen will return to the ice tonight as the Minnesota Wild take on Calgary.
Cullen missed three games with a groin injury, and the Wild went 1-2 with him out of the lineup.
Cullen has tapered off some since a blistering start. He has six goals and 13 assists in 27 games.
He’s still playing well, and he’s third on the team in scoring.
However, the team is in dire need of a winning streak.
The Wild are 13-13-4, and only one point from last place in the Western Conference’s Northwest Division.
Star Tribune Wild beat writer Michael Russo wrote a blog about the dire situation Minnesota is in right now. You can read it by clicking here. You have to scroll down a bit, but it’s a good read. It’s the one titled “Wild, one point from dead last in the division, find new ways to shoot themselves in the foot.”
He says he took some heat from players about it on Saturday before the game against Calgary.
That’s all for now.
