Wild sign defenseman Justin Falk to 1-year, 2-way deal

Justin Falk comes back to the Wild organization, as he signs a 1-year, 2-way contract. There is an old saying that goes, “the devil you know, is better than the one that you don’t.”  It wasn’t the first time in the Wild’s history that the team brought a player back after a season or two away from the organization.  The team brought back Sergei Krivokrasov after trading...

Kreider has surgery; Falk not with team on trip; Straka retires

Per Sean Hartnett, injured winger Chris Kreider had surgery on his hand and will be out indefinitely. Kreider was not on the road trip with the team, and will be out for at least the remainder of the regular season. Kreider’s 37 points (6th on the team) and 17 goals (3rd) leave a big hole in the lineup that will need to be filled by the snake-bitten Martin St. Louis, among others...

Lineup notes: Falk, Carcillo scratched

Per Andrew Gross, Justin Falk and the newly acquired Dan Carcillo will be the healthy scratches tonight when the Rangers take on the Columbus Blue Jackets. Michael Del Zotto and J.T.

Miller over Carcillo is also a no-brainer...

The other lineup change is Justin Falk in for Michael Del Zotto. It appears Alain Vigneault is matching Del Zotto and Falk based on opposition. The Devils have a little more snarl in the lineup...
