Cullen will draw back into the Wild lineup on Tuesday.

Cullen was scratched on the tail-end of a back-to-back on Saturday but will get back into the lineup tonight in St. Louis. The scratching on Saturday was likely nothing more than giving a 41-year-old the night off to rest. Cullen has 11 points (4G / 7A) in 50 games this season.
