Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said he strikes a balance between kicking the players in the butt vs. pumping them up following a disappointing loss. Boudreau was again in that spot Friday after the Ducks snapped a 12-game losing streak vs. the Wild Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center.
"Today was massaging in the room," Boudreau said. "Tried to keep it positive on the ice."

New center Victor Rask couldn't get to town in time for practice. So he'll skate with the team Saturday morning and make his Wild debut later that night vs. Columbus.
Boudreau said that his other new forward, Pontus Aberg, had a good debut on Thursday. The Wild acquired him in a trade with the Ducks on Wednesday.
