Wild winger Marcus Foligno claims revenge won’t be on his mind during Saturday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks at Xcel Energy Center. When the Central division rivals played in Chicago on Oct. 12, Foligno dropped the gloves with Blackhawks winger John Hayden midway through the second period. Their lengthy fight ended with Foligno eating a vicious right hook from Hayden. Foligno broke his cheekbone on that punch and missed a game before returning to the lineup wearing a full cage with his helmet for the next six games while the injury healed. Foligno was relieved to get the full cage off for Thursday’s 6-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens at the Xcel Energy Center. “It felt great,” Foligno said. “It just gives me more vision out there when I’m looking down for pucks. It’s a lot more clear.” Foligno occasionally whiffed on pucks during the six games he wore the cage. He said it messed with his depth perception, especially when looking down at his feet.
