ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have altered their lineup in search of a spark in their first-round playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Stephane Veilleux replaced Zenon Konopka on the fourth line for Game 3 on Sunday. The Blackhawks won the first two games in Chicago. Veilleux skated with Torrey Mitchell and Mike Rupp.
Before the game, the Wild recalled three forwards from their AHL affiliate: Mikael Granlund, Jake Dowell and Veilleux. Dowell and Veilleux, both veterans, spent most of the season with Houston. Granlund was sent to the Aeros after struggling through the first few weeks of his NHL career with the Wild.
Veilleux and Pierre-Marc Bouchard are the only players around who played on each of Minnesota's previous playoff teams in 2003, 2007 and 2008.
