Recap


Wild 5, Flames 1: Zach Parise scored two goals and set up another as Minnesota completed its four-game homestand with a third straight victory.

Captain Mikko Koivu recorded a goal and two assists while Justin Fontaine and Zenon Konopka scored 33 seconds apart in the third period for the Wild, who have won six of seven overall. Defenseman Ryan Suter notched two assists and Josh Harding made 24 saves to improve to 7-0-0 at home.

Jiri Hudler tallied and Reto Berra stopped 19 shots for the Flames, who are 1-1-0 on their four-game road trip.

Minnesota fell behind less than 5 1/2 minutes into the game before reeling off five unanswered goals to take control. Koivu began the run with a backhander from the doorstep at 9:07 of the first period and Parise gave the Wild a 2-1 lead at 6:28 of the second, burying his own rebound from the left side of the crease during a power play.

Fontaine widened the gap at 8:05 of the third, as he came out from behind the net and fired the puck past Berra from the left faceoff circle. Konopka made it 4-1 moments later by converting a short 2-on-1 rush from the left circle and Parise capped the scoring - and his second two-goal effort of the season - with 6:46 to play.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Konopka's goal was his first point in 82 games. He last got on the scoresheet with a tally against Pittsburgh on Dec. 16, 2011 while with Ottawa. ... Minnesota RW Jason Pominville's four-game goal-scoring streak came to an end, as did C Mikael Granlund's string of five straight contests with a point. ... Calgary LW Curtis Glencross had his four-game point streak halted while D Chad Billins notched an assist in his NHL debut.
