Wild 7, Stars 4
* Wild: Snap 16-game road losing streak vs Stars
* Wild: won 6 straight
* Mikko Koivu (MIN): Goal (8), assist; 4-game point streak
* Jaromir Jagr (DAL): 4th straight game with goal
FROM ELIAS: The Wild set a franchise record when eight different players recorded two or more points in Minnesota's 7-4 win at Dallas. The previous Wild high for multi-point men in one game was seven, set in an 8-2 victory at Chicago exactly nine years earlier (March 25, 2004). The victim and venue were the same in the only other instance of an NHL team with eight players scoring two or more points in a game this season. That was by the Blackhawks in their 8-1 rout of the Stars in Dallas on March 16.

Bruins 3, Maple Leafs 2 (SO)
* Bruins: won 5 straight and 7 of last 8 at home
* Milan Lucic (BOS): 1st goal since Feb. 24; ends 15-game drought
* Maple Leafs: 0-4 this season in shootouts (NHL-worst W-L in such games)
* Joffrey Lupul (TOR): PP goal (4); 4 goals, assist in last 3 games
FROM ELIAS: Milan Lucic ended his 15-game goalless streak when he scored in the second period of the Bruins' 3-2 shootout win over the Maple Leafs. Lucic scored more goals than any other Boston player over the past two seasons (56) but he's found the net only five times in 30 games this year. Lucic's 15-game goal drought was his longest single-season goalless streak since he had one of an identical length in February/March 2009.

Red Wings 3, Coyotes 2
