TUESDAY'S STORY LINE: Kris Foucault, who was recalled from Houston yesterday, will make his NHL debut tonight. The 21-year old said it is a dream come true and joked he hopes he doesn't fall in his first shift. Foucault's parents, Gary and Heather, were flying in from Calgary this afternoon and will see their son make his debut in St. Paul. Foucault will be on a line with Erik Christensen and Carson McMillan, and said the other players have helped prepare him for his debut. "Basically they said everyone has done it. We have had our first games now it is my turn, don't be too nervous and show us what you got," said Foucault. Mike Yeo reiterated today that he wants goals and some playmaking from Foucault. Another player the Wild are looking for points from is Matt Cullen. Despite playing well, Cullen hasn't scored a goal since January 10th, and has just five assists over the last 12 games. For tonight's game against Anaheim, Yeo moved Cullen, who is primarily a center, to the wing on a line with Kyle Brodziak and Nick Johnson. Yeo feels the move can help jump-start Cullen. "I think Cully has been playing well here. The numbers haven't been there for him, but he is doing a lot of good things. It is as much as anything else, it is about surrounding him with guys that are capable of helping him to take advantage of his skill and what he can do out there," said Yeo. " We see what Heater was able to do with Brodzy and Johnny. It gives Brodzy and Jonnhy someone that is a real threat on that line, but on top of that, it gives Cully, a guy that has been doing a lot of good things for us, some real quality players and gives him a little bit more to work with." Josh Harding will be in the net for the Wild for the first time since allowing four goals in the third period in the devastating loss to Nashville on January 31st. Yeo has confidence that Harding will be able to bounce back mentally from the loss. "He has to. It has been a little while now. I know Hards has the ability to be a starting goalie in the NHL, he has proven it this year, but in order for that to happen these are the type of things you have to deal with, and let's give him a chance to go out there and see how he responds to that," said Yeo. HE SAID IT: "This time of the year it is a lot more important to get two points at the end of the night and that's where we are at right now. It is pretty tough for our group to come out of a game and feel really good about the fact that we deserved to win, or feel good about the fact we played a good game. What it comes down to right now is we have to find ways to win and that is what we are not doing." Yeo on the team needing two points
