Parise has goal and assist, Minnesota holds off Arizona 4-3 to remain undefeated @NHLdotcom

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Zach Parise had a goal and an assist, and the Minnesota Wild remained undefeated by holding off the previously-unbeaten Arizona Coyotes 4-3 Thursday night.

The Wild had fresh legs after a four-day layoff between games, jumping on the tired Coyotes for a 3-0 lead.

Parise and Thomas Vanek scored less than a minute apart in the first period and Mikko Koivu added a short-handed goal midway through the second. Mikael Granlund also scored in the second.

The Coyotes clawed their way back through a string of Minnesota penalties, pulling within 4-3 on Michael Stone's 4-on-4 goal with just over 5 minutes left.

Devan Dubnyk closed it out, though, stopping 18 shots for his 100th career win. The Wild are 3-0 for the first time since opening 4-0 in 2008-09.

Anthony Duclair scored his fourth goal in two games and Max Domi had his third of the season for Arizona.
