TORONTO -- The Minnesota Wild scored two power-play goals to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 at Air Canada Centre on Thursday.

The Wild power play has scored 13 goals in the past 11 road games; it scored in six of the first 22 road games.

"We have to keep doing that," said Mikael Granlund, who scored the game-winning goal. "Right now our confidence on the PP is way up. I don't know if we are doing anything special. It's just the way it goes; sometimes the pucks go in and sometimes they don't. When you have the confidence in your power play that is a huge thing."
