The Wild have lost four of their last five games and fell below
.500 after dropping a 4-3 decision to the Edmonton Oilers on
Gaborik returned to Minnesota's lineup for the first time in a
month and registered a goal and an assist, but it was not enough
to rescue the slumping Wild.
The 23-year-old Gaborik has missed all but four games this
season with a hip flexor injury. Gaborik, who had been
sidelined since October 23, has three goals and eight points in
his four contests.
The Blues, whose four wins are the fewest in the NHL, hope to
rebound from a 6-3 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.
Dean McAmmond tallied twice and Doug Weight and defenseman Eric
Weinrich each supplied a pair of assists for St. Louis, which
dropped a 3-2 decision in its only other meeting this season
