News: Vrbata tallied twice, with one coming on the power play, in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Wild.
Impact: After a very slow start to the season, Vrbata has start to make strides toward the production he put up last season. He is on a three-game point streak and has three goals and two assists in the last five games.
News: Miller stopped 31 of 33 Wild shots to grab a win on Wednesday.
Impact: Miller put in an impressive performance Wednesday, surviving a late onslaught from Minnesota. He's been inconsistent all season, but has been given the lion's share of the work, playing more minutes this season than any other goaltender in the league, which is worth something.
News: Miller will protect the net Wednesday against the Wild, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.
Impact: Miller continues to struggle in net, allowing another three goals to the Blackhawks in his last outing to move his season GAA to 2.54 and save percentage to .911. He did receive a win in the game against Chicago, however, and will look to make it two in a row Wednesday against a Wild team averaging exactly three goals per game this season.
