Wild's Jason Pominville: Strong offensive effort Tuesday

Pominville notched a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 home win over the Kings.

There's been chatter around the hockey world that Pominville will see a reduction in ice time under new bench boss Bruce Boudreau, and that's been the case in the early going, with the Quebec native topping out at 15:48 through the first three games. However, if the 33-year-old can continue to play like he did Tuesday, it wouldn't be surprising to see the prolific bench boss tinker with the lines in Pominville's favor. For the time being, he's parked on the third line with Erik Haula at center and Nino Niederreiter on the opposite wing.
