ST. PAUL, Minn. - Mikko Koivu assisted on goals by Andrew Brunette, Antti Miettinen and Brent Burns to lead the Minnesota Wild over the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Monday night.

The Wild (6-0-1) are the only NHL team without a regulation loss despite playing the last five games without star Marian Gaborik.

Chicago, which had its seven-game point streak snapped, grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first period on a goal by Patrick Sharp, but allowed the next three goals and saw its third-period rally fall short.

Koivu has been Minnesota's best player during its early season streak. The fourth-year Fin leads Minnesota with 13 points and is among the league leaders in assists with 12.
