Scandella returns to Wild lineup vs. Coyotes


The Minnesota Wild will have defenseman Marco Scandella in the lineup tonight when they play host to the Arizona Coytoes.

Scandella has been out of the Wild lineup since Jan. 6 due to an upper body injury.

Scandella leads all Wild defensemen with nine goals in 34 games this season while averaging 22:17 a night in ice time.

The Wild, who are looking for their first back-to-back wins since a four-game win streak Nov.13-20, have won both meetings with the Coyotes this season.
