Mathew Dumba - D - Wild
Matthew Dumba will be a healthy scratch again Tuesday against the Nashville Predators.
Dumba, 18, is being kept around the team for the "experience," according to coach Mike Yeo. He'll likely be returned to juniors after his fifth game with the club.

Niklas Backstrom - G - Wild
Niklas Backstrom will get his second start of the season Tuesday night against the Nashville Predators.
Backstrom stopped 25 of 27 shots in a season-opening win Saturday night. He'll get the majority of the starts in net for Minnesota this season, although backup Josh Harding may play more than usual because of the compact schedule.

Should be a great game tonight. Looking forward to the continued resurgence of Dany Heatley.
