Boguniecki, playing just his eighth game this season because of a shoulder injury, scored two goals Thursday, including the game-winner, leading St. Louis to a 5-3 come-from-behind victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Blues fell behind 1:05 into the final period, but Dallas Drake, Mark Rycroft and Boguniecki each scored in the third to give the Blues just their fourth win in 14 games.
"I thought we showed some resiliency to come back like that," St. Louis coach Joel Quenneville said. "We needed it."
"If you want to score goals, you have to go to the net," Tkachuk said. "That's where the puck is going to be."
Boguniecki, who had 22 goals and 27 assists in his first full NHL campaign last season, has four goals and one assist since returning to action Jan. 1. He missed the Blues' first 35 games after injuring his shoulder in training camp.
"I don't feel any pressure," Boguniecki said. "When guys like me and Rycroft score, it's a bonus. It takes the pressure off the other guys."
The Wild are coming off Friday's 4-2 victory over the struggling Pittsburgh Penguins -- just their second win in 12 games (2-3-7).
"We didn't want to lose at home, especially like this," Laaksonen said. "It's hard to play when you have so much pressure on you. It's good to get that first goal. That helped us a lot."
