TUESDAYS STORYLNES: The big story out of Winnipeg is Wild forward Guillaume Latendresse will return to the lineup. Latendresse has missed 15 games with a concussion. Yesterday Yeo had stated he wanted Latendresse to get more practice time, but Matt Cullen came down with the flu overnight and will not be able to play tonight. "Ideally we probably would have liked to give him more time like we discussed yesterday, but these are circumstances we are dealt, and we talked to him and he is comfortable and ready to go." Yeo said they will ease Latendresse into it and he will most likely start on the 4th line, but expect the skilled Latendresse to see some power play time. HACKETT BACKING UP: Backstrom will get the start and Matt Hackett will back him up. There was doubt he could back-up after he took a puck to the throat in practice, but he is ready to go.
