Wild's Niederreiter looks to stay hot versus Flames

Whatever's been ailing Nino Niederreiter for most of the season is gone.

The Minnesota Wild forward, who went from second-liner to fourth-liner after starting the season in a dreadful slump, has picked up his game lately with four goals in his last three contests. Niederreiter's two goals keyed a 5-1 win Thursday night over the Florida Panthers, Minnesota's second straight lopsided victory.

Niederreiter and his team try to keep things going in the right direction with a matinee game Saturday against the Pacific Division-leading Calgary Flames at Xcel Energy Center.
