Parise has 2 goals and Harding stops 24 shots in Wild's 5-1 victory over Flames.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Zach Parise scored twice and Josh Harding continued his dominance in goal to lead the Minnesota Wild to a 5-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Harding stopped 24 of 25 shots to win his fifth straight start. He leads the NHL with a 1.10 goals-against average and .950 save percentage.

Parise put the Wild ahead 2-1 with a power-play goal at 6:28 of the second period.

Mikko Koivu, Justin Fontaine and Zenon Konopka also scored for Minnesota.

Jiri Hudler scored his sixth goal of the season for the Flames. Calgary goalie Reto Berra stopped 13 of 15 shots through two periods before the Wild broke it open with two goals over 33 seconds midway through the third.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
