Wild swap goalies for Game 3 vs. Avalanche
Question of the Day
Coach Mike Yeo confirmed the change after the pre-game morning skate on Monday. Yeo pulled Bryzgalov for Kuemper midway through the second period on Saturday when the Wild fell behind 3-1. The Avalanche won the first two games of the series, and Bryzgalov gave up eight goals on 45 shots.
That wasn’t the only move Yeo made, though. Kyle Brodziak was taken out of the lineup. Justin Fontaine was added to the third line to play with center Erik Haula and Matt Cooke. Dany Heatley also replaced Stephane Veilleux, but Yeo didn’t specify which line Heatley would be on.
Fontaine and Heatley were scratched for the first two games at Colorado. Brodziak has never been a healthy scratch before in his six seasons with Minnesota. He missed the last regular season game due to an undisclosed injury and two games in the 2010-11 season because of an illness.
“It’s not just about Brodzy. It’s also about other guys and their performance,” Yeo said.
“He’s had a great attitude for his teammates,” the coach said.
