THURSDAY'S STORYLINE: A quick start. That is what the Wild are looking for tonight in Edmonton. The Wild came out lackadaisical in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Head coach Mike Yeo said he expects his team to come out ready tonight. "We talked about it, we addressed it. I am really expecting our group to respond with a great effort tonight. I am expecting our group to respond with a great focus on the way we are supposed to play the game." Yeo will put out the same lineup tonight as he did Tuesday vs. Pittsburgh. He said he thought of making lineup changes for tonight's game but he likes to give players a "chance to respond." The top line of Dany Heatley, MIkko Koivu and Devin Setoguchi will be back together after being broken up during Tuesday's game. The one change will be Heatley and Setoguchi will swap wings. Setoguchi will move to the right wing and Heatley will play on the left side. "We want to get those guys back on their strong sides. I think that the one thing that when you play guys on their offsides, there is a tendency to go east, west.... I feel like that line hasn't generated as much speed coming through the neutral zone and maybe that's a factor," stated Yeo when explaining the move. Another reason appears to be Setoguchi's comfort level. "When I look back at the two goals he (Setoguchi) has scored, both have been from the right side of the ice. Part of it is to make him a little bit more comfortable and get him back to where he was feeling good about himself," said Yeo. HE SAID IT: "We can't just wait for a spark to happen we need to have it collectively as a group from the start. Expect a quick start from us tonight. That is the way we want to play. Not wait to jump in and get going." -- Devin Setoguchi on getting off to a quick start
