Gaborik travels with Wild, but Demitra stays behind on road trip

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild left town with one of
their two injured stars.

Marian Gaborik traveled with the team Saturday to Colorado,
where the Wild will play the Avalanche on Sunday. They have three
more road games against Northwest Division opponents next week.

Pavol Demitra, however, did not go on the trip. Both he and
Gaborik -- the two wings on Minnesota's top line -- have been
bothered by strained groin muscles for the past two weeks. Demitra
has missed five of the last seven games, and Gaborik has missed
three of the last five.
