COLUMBUS, Ohio (Ticker) -- Minnesota Wild coach Jacques Lemaire has his team firing on all cylinders as it moves closer to the Olympic break.

The Wild look to extend their franchise-record winning streak to six games Friday when they conclude their season series with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Brian Rolston has four goals and four assists and Marian Gaborik has four tallies during the streak for Minnesota, which has won four of its last five road contests.

Alexandre Daigle and Stephane Veilleux had a goal and an assist each for the Wild in Thursday's 5-1 triumph over Nashville. Minnesota has successfully killed 16 of its last 17 shorthanded situations.

Despite being the league's lowest-scoring team (121 goals), the Blue Jackets have won six of nine overall and are 6-1 in their last seven at home.

Jan Hrdina scored twice and Trevor Letowski netted the game-winner late in the third period to lead Columbus in Tuesday's 6-5 victory over Vancouver. The Blue Jackets set franchise records for goals at home and power-play tallies (4).

Columbus has won two of the three meetings against Minnesota this season - both in shootouts - and has taken the last five home encounters.
