Josh Harding left Friday night’s game against St. Louis in the first period with a leg injury. Harding was in obvious pain after a collision at the side of the Wild net. According to the team, the injury is unrelated to the hip injury required offseason surgery.
Harding will be re-evaluated tomorrow. He wasn’t slated to play against Philadelphia anyway. Here is the lineup for tomorrow night, barring any other injuries:
Forwards – Brunette, Koivu, Kobasew, Nystrom, Wellman, Havlat, Earl, Madden, Clutterbuck, Kassian, Rau and Staubitz.
Defense – Schultz, Burns, Zanon, Bagnall, Cuma and Prosser.
Goaltenders – Nik Backstrom and Anton Khudobin.
