Star Tribune’s THREE STARS
1. Marco Scandella, Wild: His laser from the blue line beat Corey Crawford for the winning goal, and he blocked three shots.
2. Zach Parise, Wild: Ended his team’s six-game power-play drought with a second-period goal.
3. Marian Hossa, Chicago: Scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and had a team-high four shots on goal.
By the NUMBERS
6 Games without a first-period goal for the Wild until Matt Cooke scored the first of the game Thursday.
7 Power-play goals this season for Parise, tied for second in the NHL.
