      Wild's Darcy Kuemper: Pulled in loss

      Kuemper allowed four goals on 18 shots and lasted just one minute into the second period before being pulled in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Making his second start of the season, Kuemper was not nearly as effective as he was his first time out, and ultimately forced coach Mike Yeo to play Devin Dubnyk for the majority of the game after he started Saturday's contest as well. With Dubnyk playing well in front of him, Kuemper likely won't draw starts too regularly.

      Wild's Darcy Kuemper: Will start Sunday against Winnipeg

      Kuemper will be in the crease in Sunday's game against the Jets, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Devan Dubnyk is scheduled to start in goal Saturday against Anaheim, which is why Minnesota has opted to roll with Kuemper Sunday against Winnipeg in the second of back-to-back contests. Kuemper has been great in limited action thus far this season, posting an 0-0-1 record with a 1.94 GAA and .946 save percentage. On Sunday he draws into a matchup with a Winnipeg squad that has been highly effective offensively, averaging 3.29 goals scored per game.

    • Wild's Kuemper Relieves Dubnyk On Wednesday

      News: Darcy Kuemper played the final 23:10 of Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Blues. He stopped all nine shots he faced.
      Analysis: Darcy Kuemper has been the forgotten since returning from a lower-body injury in late January, logging only three appearances since that time in the wake of Devan Dubnyk's dominance. While Wednesday's game represented a rare poor showing from Dubnyk, who surrendered all six goals on just 17 shots, Kuemper isn't in any position to make a push for the No. 1 gig. Expect Mike Yeo to continue to start Dubnyk for every game of the Wild's postseason run.
    • Wild's Kuemper A Scratch For Thursday

      News: Darcy Kuemper (illness) will not be available for Thursday's playoff opener against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
      Analysis: Darcy Kuemper missed Wednesday's practice and Thursday's morning skate due to the illness, which will allow Niklas Backstrom to serve as the understudy to starter Devan Dubnyk for Game 1. Though Kuemper didn't travel with the Wild to St. Louis, he seems to be feeling better and should join the team Friday for practice. If he checks out well during the session, he'd likely be cleared to back up Dubnyk for Saturday's Game 2.
    • Wild's Kuemper Feeling Ill

      News: Darcy Kuemper missed Wednesday's practice with an illness.
      Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo said the illness could prevent Darcy Kuemper from being available to back up Game 1 starter Devan Dubnyk for Thursday's playoff opener against the Blues. If that's the case, Niklas Backstrom would step in to serve as Dubnyk's understudy.
    • Wild's Kuemper Sees Relief Duty Saturday

      News: Darcy Kuemper played the final 20 minutes of Saturday's loss to the Blues, stopping eight of nine shots.
      Analysis: Darcy Kuemper ended the regular season with appearances in each of the Wild's last two games, but that was preceded by nearly a three-month absence in the net. During that time in between, Devan Dubnyk firmly cemented himself as not only the Wild's top goalie, but as one of the league's best netminders, as he finished the season second in the NHL in both GAA and save percentage. Even if the Wild makes a deep run through the postseason, it wouldn't be surprising if Kuemper never left the bench.
    • Wild's Kuemper Makes Triumphant Return

      News: Darcy Kuemper was terrific in his return to the net Thursday, stopping 32 of 34 in a 4-2 win over Nashville.
      Analysis: All he did in his first start since way back on Jan. 20 was outduel Pekka Rinne. A nice regular-season ending for Darcy Kuemper, but it remains to be seen what his role will be in the Minnesota organization going forward with the way the Wild have ridden Devan Dubnyk since acquiring him.
    • Wild's Kuemper Draws Thursday Start

      News: Darcy Kuemper is slated to start Thursday's game against the Predators, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
      Analysis: Darcy Kuemper, who will be making his first start since Jan. 6, will give Devan Dubnyk -- who has made 38 straight starts for the Wild -- a well-deserved breather in the team's next-to-last regular season game. Per the report, Dubnyk is expected to start Saturday's contest against St. Louis, but Kuemper merits consideration Thursday by those looking for an affordable goalie option in daily formats.
    • Wild's Kuemper Could Start Season Finale

      News: Darcy Kuemper could start Minnesota's final regular-season game against St. Louis with the Wild having clinched a playoff spot, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
      Analysis: Darcy Kuemper hasn't played since Jan. 20, with Devan Dubnyk having played every minute in net since then. Kuemper has been inactive most nights as the third goalie, but it looks like he'll finally see the light of day again before the regular season ends.
