Wild Forward Parise After Friday's Practice: 'It's About The First Period Tomorrow'

April 21, 2017 02:35 PM

After a day off, the Wild were back on the practice ice Friday. Game 5 vs. St. Louis is Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. Xcel Energy Center. 

A common theme in the locker room Friday afternoon was the emphasis on thinking small picture. That the key right now is to just win the first period on Saturday, and go from there.


Good news on the injury front for the Wild: forward Erik Haula is good-to-go in Game 5 after missing Game 4 with an undisclosed injury.

The Wild trail the best-of-seven series 3-1.
