NHL.com: Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk hasn’t been ruled out against the LA Kings tonight but it may make more sense to wait until Tuesday against the Stars.
Dubnyk left Tuesday game after a collision in the second period.
“It was a muscle in my side when ran into me,” Dubnyk told the Wild’s website. “It probably looked worse impact-wise hitting the ice than it actually was. The damage was done when they clipped my feet.”

Carrick suffered the injury during practice on Thursday.
New York Islanders: Forward Tom Kuhnhackle left last night’s game with a lower-body injury.
