ST. PAUL -- It certainly won't count when it comes to record keeping purposes, but Zach Parise's goal late in the second period Thursday against the Dallas Stars will go down as a big one for the veteran forward.

As big as they can get in a preseason game, anyway.

Parise, who ended the regular season last year in red-hot fashion, scoring 12 goals in the final 18 games, also scored one goal in each of the three playoff games he played in before fracturing his sternum late in a Game 3 win against the Winnipeg Jets.
