Mike Yeo will return once again to the Xcel Energy Center.

Actually, he’ll have to return at least twice, as the Minnesota Wild host his St. Louis Blues in the first round of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.

The puck drops at the Xcel Energy Center at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday night to begin the series.

Minnesota finished 2-2-1 against the Blues in the regular season.
