UPDATE, 12:19 PM: The Wild will go back to the fourth line pairing that brought them a victory in Game 1, with Sean Bergenheim and Justin Fontaine swapping in for Matt Cooke and Jordan Schroeder, who were used on the wings in Game 2.

The Wild utilized Sean Bergenheim and Justin Fontaine as their fourth-line wings in Game 1, then switched to Matt Cooke and Jordan Schroeder in Game 2. Fontaine, who was sick for Game 2, is expected to be back for Game 3, so that will probably necessitate a lineup change. It’s unknown, however, who will end up on the left wing as a result.
