ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Canucks and Minnesota Wild are getting very used to each other. Based on their first meeting Wednesday, the Canucks still have something to prove.

Vancouver and Minnesota continue a string of meetings in an intensifying rivalry when they face each other for the second time in three days at the Xcel Energy Center on Friday.

The two Northwest Division foes, who squared off in a seven-game series in the 2003 playoffs that featured a number of fights, will meet here three times in a span of three weeks, starting with Wednesday's 6-0 win for the Wild.

Rookie Matt Foy scored the first two goals of his NHL career and Dwayne Roloson made 32 saves for Minnesota, which has scored exactly six goals in both of its two wins and a total of two in its two losses.

Foy was recalled from Houston of the American Hockey League before the season. His second tally was of the unassisted variety. Roloson made 18 saves in the third period en route to his 17th career shutout.

Their efforts handed Vancouver its first regulation loss of the season. The Canucks had scored at least three goals in each game of a 2-0-1 start, including four by Markus Naslund.

Naslund was able to take just two shots in a game that the Wild dominated in every facet Wednesday. Minnesota won 41-of-64 faceoffs and converted 4-of-5 power-play chances. Vancouver was 0-for-8 with a man advantage and has just three such tallies this season.

With the defensive performance, the Wild improved on its penalty-killing numbers. They have allowed just one power-play goal in 27 chances (96.3 percent), the top mark in the league.
