Wild G Josh Harding leads the NHL with a 1.50 goals-against average, but 13 of his 16 wins have come at home.

Numbers: This will be the 18th meeting of the Koivu brothers. Anaheim’s Saku has seven points against Mikko’s 11 in those games but is 10-3-4 against the Wild. … The Ducks are tied for fifth in the NHL at 31.9 shots per game; the Wild allows the third-fewest shots per game at 25.6.
