Saturday was one of Wild winger Marcus Foligno's best games of the season. Not only did he assist on both of Matt Dumba's goals in a win over Winnipeg, but he also registered a career-high six shots on net.
"I just looked at my recent games and haven't been shooting much and just was told to get that shot off," Foligno said. "It's something that before this game I prepared myself to do and I would've liked to score, but we created a lot of chances."
Foligno's tripping penalty late in the second period carried over into the third, and that's when Winnipeg scored. But Foligno redeemed himself with his pair of helpers on the two insurance goals later in the period — this after he was a healthy scratch in mid-December.
"I'm just trying to play more and get more into games," he said. "I think that helped me out a little bit. You always want to be a factor every day, and it was disappointing when I wasn't."
