ST. PAUL, Minn. - Marian Gaborik kept up his remarkable scoring rate with a goal and two assists, and the Minnesota Wild avoided elimination from the playoff chase for at least two more days with a 3-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

Niklas Backstrom, making his team-record 19th straight start in goal for the Wild, made 27 saves. The Stars peppered him in the first period and finally scored with 12:34 left in the third on Fabian Brunnstrom's 2-on-1 goal.
