Minnesota Wild’s Zenon Konopka battered, ready again

“It’s part of the game,” he said after a morning team meeting. “That’s what we’ve been waiting eight months for, to get back to old-time hockey.”

Konopka grinned when asked if his nose was broken.

“When you break it as many times as I have, it’s not a big deal,” he said. “It’s been about 13 times I broke my nose.”
