After having lost by a score of 3-1 to the last place L.A. Kings on Tuesday, the Minnesota Wild and the Kings are now currently tied at the very bottom of the NHL standings with an identical record of 6-11-1 so far this season.

This evening, the Wild will have an opportunity to start winning again as they host the Arizona Coyotes. Last Saturday, Minnesota travelled to Scottsdale where they beat the Coyotes by a score of 4-3. They will be looking to get another win in less than a week against Arizona.

To achieve this goal, Bruce Boudreau has undoubtedly addressed certain issues during practice and training this week. That being said, the Wild's head coach hasn't made any adjustments to his line combinations ahead of today's game despite having lost to one of the worst teams in the NHL on Tuesday.

Here is Minnesota's projected lineup for tonight's game against the Coyotes according to NHL.com correspondent Jessi Pierce:

Forwards:

Jason Zucker - Eric Staal - Mats Zuccarello

Zach Parise - Mikko Koivu - Kevin Fiala

Jordan Greenway - Joel Eriksson Ek - Luke Kunin

Defensemen:

Jonas Brodin - Matt Dumba

Carson Soucy - Brad Hunt

Goaltenders:
