Parise likely back for rematch
Preview: The Wild is expected to get LW Zach Parise back in the lineup Wednesday when the team finishes its regular-season series with Colorado; Parise hasn't played since entering the NHL's COVID protocols on March 24. It's unclear, though, if RW Mats Zuccarello (lower-body injury) will suit up. Same with RW Nick Bjugstad, who didn't return to Monday's game after his fight with the Avalanche's Kyle Burroughs. On Tuesday, the Wild reassigned G Dereck Baribeau to Iowa in the American Hockey League and placed F Kyle Rau on waivers.

C Ryan Hartman is coming off his third career three-point game, scoring a goal and assisting on two others. … Colorado C Nathan MacKinnon has 23 points in his past 14 games. D Cale Makar has two goals and five assists vs. the Wild this season.
Numbers: The Wild scored two power-play goals in Monday's 5-4 loss to Colorado, the first time that's happened this season. Fiala leads the Wild in power play goals with four. … Colorado has outscored its opponents 67-28 during its 15-game point streak. LW Gabriel Landeskog's game-winner was his team-high sixth of the season.
