The first two games of the Wild's five-game trip provide right wing Devin Setoguchi with a homecoming of sorts. Tuesday night at Calgary, Setoguchi was cheered on by 200 friends and family members, who caravanned from his tiny hometown of Taber, Alberta, 2 1/2 hours away. After the game, Setoguchi and the Wild were scheduled to fly to San Jose, where they will face the Sharks on Thursday. Before being traded in June to the Wild, Setoguchi was part of that organization since being drafted eighth overall in 2005. "It'll be good. I grew up in that organization," Setoguchi, 24, said. "I have a lot of friends that are there and a lot of people that I've met over the years, so I'm definitely excited to go back and say hi to them."
