Minnesota Wild right wing Cal Clutterbuck hasn't played since taking a knee-to-knee hit from the Edmonton Oilers' Taylor Hall less than two weeks ago.
While the Wild may have been out for revenge Sunday night, they might not get a chance with Hall banged up, too.
Minnesota tries for a 19th home win in 20 matchups against Edmonton, which could be without one of its top forwards due to a leg injury.
Matt Cullen scored twice and added an assist as the Wild (10-8-2) pulled out a 3-1 road victory over the Oilers (8-8-4) on Feb. 21. Minnesota, which has outscored Edmonton 37-26 in going 11-2-0 since 2010-11, was upset with Hall's hit on Clutterbuck with 2:33 left in the game.
Hall was given a major penalty for kneeing and ejected. He later received a two-game suspension from the league.
"You hate to see those hits," Cullen said. "It was a fast play. I think it was deserving of the penalty. ... Cal is a very important part of our team. ... You hate to see a teammate on the ice."
