Tonight at the Xcel Energy Center, Minnesota Wild forward Matt Cullen will be the 40th player in National Hockey League history to skate on his 41st birthday or beyond.  Today is Cullen's 41st birthday.

He'll celebrate by facing the Montreal Canadians who feature Carey Price, arguably the best goalie in the NHL.
