Wild 5, Edmonton 2
The Minnesota Wild issued a rather convincing statement Tuesday in the form of a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers, extending their streak to 12-0-2 in their last 14 road games.
In a clash between two of the hottest teams in the NHL, the Wild cooled the Oilers off in a hurry, jumping out to a 3-0 lead before the game was 25 minutes old and then beating back a couple of comeback attempts before putting the home team away for good.
Tyler Graovac scored twice and Jason Zucker, Zach Parise and Chris Stewart added singles as the Wild and Anton Slepyshev and Leon Draisaitl (on the power play) replied for the Oilers.
