The 18-year-old Filatov scored eight goals at the recent world junior championships to lead Russia to the bronze medal. He was recalled soon afterward and has four goals in six NHL games.

Rookie goalie Steve Mason, who entered as the league leader with six shutouts and a 1.74 goals-against average, made 21 saves to improve to 15-9-1.

Marek Zidlicky had a power-play goal and assist, and Antti Miettinen scored for the Wild.
