It would seem Minnesota Wild coach Bruce Boudreau has an itch. And he's been scratching it.
In the first half-dozen games of the season, Boudreau has sat healthy forwards Victor Rask, Ryan Donato and Kevin Fiala on various nights. All three players were acquired by former general manager Paul Fenton last season.
Whether those three are in the lineup Thursday when Minnesota meets the Canadiens in Montreal remains to be seen.
