TUESDAYS STORYLINES: After spending all day Monday traveling cross-country from Anaheim to Columbus, the Wild were back on the ice for morning skate at Nationwide Arena. There was a new face on the ice as the Wild announced Casey Wellman was recalled from Houston (AHL) today. Wellman is second in the AHL with 10 goals, seven of which came on the power play. Mike Yeo said Wellman has been "playing great" in Houston and is a game-time decision tonight. Yeo feels Wellman can add offense to the lineup and compete at this level. "From what I have heard and from what I am understanding, his goals have been the kind of goals that you can score in this league too, they have been from around the blue paint. Obviously he has great skill, he has a great shot, but goal scorers have to be around the net, they have to score the dirty ones as well." If Wellman does play, Yeo wouldnt indicate what forward would be taken out of the lineup. HE SAID IT: "They have had a lot of injuries and we know that we are not facing a team that, obviously the projections of where this team was supposed to be, is a little bit more indicative of what we could be facing tonight. They have got their guys' backs and I think if anything we should be prepared to face a very desperate team, and I dont see any reason why our guard should come down." Yeo on facing the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight
