MN Wild: Pominville day-to-day with lower body injury, Dubnyk sick. This morning Jason Pominville was not skating at practice and was later announced as being listed day to day with a lower body injury.

With the playoffs coming up resting Pominville is important as he has finally found his game and his line pairing with Niederreiter and Haula has been arguably the best line since Torchetti became interim coach.

The lines according to Russso at practice were as follows:
Parise Koivu Coyle
Zucker Granlund Vanek
Niederreiter Haula Fontaine
Porter Stoll Jones

Don’t panic too much though Wild fans with Pommer out Fontaine is back in the lineup with Nino and Haula as I listed above and the linescould be successful. Like I said above resting Pominville is a good idea the last thing the Wild need is him regressing because of a lingering injury or worse being out long term because he made it worse than it already was.

Fontaine, Haula and Nino have played together before even though it was a short 10 minute sample size they did score three goals amongst the three of them.

Jason Pominville had an incredible iron man streak of 231 games tied with Kyle Brodziak. Tonight would be his 232nd game injury-free and would be the new franchise record. With that said I still firmly believe in resting him and not pulling a Parise coming back too soon.


Resting Dubnyk is just as important if not more important before the playoffs. This is Dubnyk’s first full season with the Wild and it hasn’t been a fairy tale by a long stretch. In 52 games his record is 25-22-5, with 4 shutouts, a 2.37 GAA, and .917 SV%. Maybe being sick is his body telling him he needs more rest. Hopefully he can rest up and come back strong in the final games of the playoff push.
