Josh Harding took the ice for practice for the first time since early January. His last game was December 31, 2013. It will take a some time to get back to the norm but it is nice he is practicing again.

Mikko Koivu with 435 points is only 3 points away from being the Minnesota Wild all-time scorer. Marian Gaborik was the current leader at 437.
