SATURDAY'S STORY LINES: The Wild will take on the surging St. Louis Blues tonight. The Blues are 4-0-1 since CoachKen Hitchcock took over for Davis Payne. Payne was fired after Minnesota beat the Blues 2-1 on November 5th. Mike Yeo said the Blues have a "swagger" about them. He feels the Blues are playing a game similar to the Red Wings and he expects them to be "aggressive in how they want to play." Yeo said it's not about the Blues, it's about Minnesota sticking toits game plan. "We play against Detroit, we play against St. Louis we play against anybody," Yeo noted. "We have to go out there and carry the mindset it's not about them it is about us -- it is about what we do." Josh Harding who is 5-2-0, with a 1.68 GAA in his career versus the Blues, will get the start. Harding allowed one goal on 31 shots in the clubs' last meeting, on November 5th. Yeo said Harding's past performance had something to do with his decision. INJURY UPDATE: Marco Scandella (concussion) skated with the team this morning. Yeo said Scandella is feeling good andis eagerto play. There is still no timetable on the return of Guillaume Latendresse (concussion) and Marek Zidlicky (concussion). Yeo said both are still day-today and resting. HE SAID IT: "Without him (Mikko Koivu), without what he does for us night in and night out,our record would be not very good right now. Trust me on that one. The guy gives you a chance to win. First and foremost, he sets the battle level for our entire group. When guys go out and see him compete and battle and just lay it on the line night in and night out you have no choice --you are going to follow your captain. "You are going to follow what that guy is doing. ... I have been around teams where your best players are your hardest working guys and that is a good recipe for success right there. Not only does he work hard, but he works hard for the team. He is never going to put himself ahead of the team." Yeo, in reference to Koivu.
