Erik Haula will play as Wild get ready for Game 2 against Dallas


After sitting out Game 1 with of a lower-body injury, the Minnesota Wild announced Friday that Erik Haula will dress for Game 2 on Saturday night.

Haula will center a line with Nino Niederreiter and Jason Pominville; the three being responsible for trying to slow down the Dallas Stars' high-powered offense, according to the Star Tribune.

The former Golden Gopher set career highs across the board this season in games played, goals, assists, plus/minus and points.

Although still missing key pieces in Zach Parise and Thomas Vanek, former North Star Mike Modano took to Twitter last night to voice his thoughts.

At least Minnesota has one of them back.

The puck drops just after 7 p.m. Saturday.
