GAME RECAP

 

STAR TRIBUNE’S THREE STARS

1. Mikko Koivu, Wild: Two assists in his 114th career multi-point game, tying Marian Gaborik’s team record.

2. Justin Fontaine, Wild: Elevated to the Zach Parise-Mikael Granlund line, he scored twice.

3. Ryan Suter, Wild: Plus-2 and impressively ignored the Suter/Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Visa commercial that kept showing.

 

By the numbers

16 Consecutive starts for Devan Dubnyk, four from Niklas Backstrom’s Wild goalie record.

22-6 Wild goal differential in the 16 first periods since Devan Dubnyk’s arrival.

25-7-2 The Wild’s record in the past 34 games vs. the Oilers.
