Parise has 2 goals, assist as Wild extend win streak to 6 with 7-4 victory over Stars

DALLAS - Zach Parise scored two goals and added an assist and the Minnesota Wild extended their winning streak to six games with a 7-4 win over Dallas Stars on Monday.

Both of Parise's goals came on bounces that barely made it over the goal line. Mikko Koivu and Matt Cullen each had a goal and assist for Minnesota, which won for the first time in Dallas since March 21, 2003, snapping a 16-game losing streak in Dallas (0-11-5).

With the game tied 4-4 in the third period, the Wild got a short-handed goal from Kyle Brodziak at 12:38.

Dany Heatley added an insurance goal with 1:28 remaining Pierre-Marc Bouchard added an empty-netter with 16 seconds left.

Niklas Backstrom, who is 14-3-1 in his past 18 games and coming off a 2-0 shutout of San Jose on Saturday, stopped 22 shots for the win.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
