Even though there's been speculation that he is dealing with a minor injury, Devan Dubnyk will be between the pipes tonight for the Wild. He did not practice on Friday after John Torchetti referred to the situation as a "maintenance" day off for the goaltender.

Torchetti used the same term to describe Zach Parise's absence from practice and it later turned out to be an injury that kept him from playing, so Minnesota fans will hold their collective breaths on Dubnyk's status.
