GAME RECAP

STAR TRIBUNE'S THREE STARS

1. Niklas Backstrom, Wild: Playing behind a depleted lineup that was missing most of its top forwards, the goalie made 35 saves through overtime.

2. PA Parenteau, Islanders: Six shots on goal, and he played with an edge all night.

3. Jarod Palmer, Wild: On a night many Wild veterans didn't show up, the rookie from Fridley had six shots on net in his NHL debut.

BY THE NUMBERS

131-104-27 The Wild's record with Mikko Koivu on the ice since 2008-09; the team is 6-8-3 without him.

13 Points in the Wild's past 15 games for Cal Clutterbuck, including seven goals.

5 Wild players have played all 33 games (Kyle Brodziak, Dany Heatley, Darroll Powe, Nick Schultz, Jared Spurgeon).

0-1-2 The Wild's record since a seven-game winning streak.

7 Islanders games to go into overtime this season; this was their first victory after they had lost their previous six.
