With Matt Cooke set to return from his suspension, the Minnesota Wild shuffled their lines ahead of Friday's Game 4.

At Thursday's morning skate, Cooke was slotted on the wing with Erik Haula at centre and Justin Fontaine on right wing.

Cooke was suspended for seven games for a knee-on-knee hit on Colorado Avalanche defenceman Tyson Barrie.

The top line was made up of Mikko Koivu at centre with Nino Niederreiter and Charlie Coyle on the wings.

Mikael Granlund was centring the second line with Zach Parise and Jason Pominville by his side.

Kyle Brodziak, Dany Heatley and Cody McCormick made up the fourth line.

Matt Moulson, who has one goal and three points in 10 games, was not on the ice for the morning skate as he is battling a lower body injury.

The Wild trail the series, 2-1.
