Wild to honor North Stars

The Wild will honor the North Stars March 29 during their home game against Florida. The team says more than 30 former North Stars will be there, including Neal Broten, Gordie Roberts and J.P. Parise.

Preview: Wild vs. Stars

Minnesota (25-19-7) beat Dallas at the Xcel Energy Center two weeks ago. However, the Stars (26-22-2) are looking to win their 15th straight home game against the Wild Saturday night. Both teams are still chasing one of the final playoff spots in the Western Conference. Minnesota lost 11 straight road games before beating Colorado last month and again Thursday night. The Stars are coming off a two-game winning streak.

Stars beat Wild in shootout

Minnesota's Kyle Brodziak scored a third-period breakaway goal against the Stars to force overtime Saturday night in Dallas. Niklas Backstrom had 33 saves through overtime, but was beaten twice in the shootout to give the Stars (27-22-2) their 2-1 victory. The Wild (25-19-8) will wrap up their three-game road trip on Tuesday in Columbus.

Preview: Wild vs. Stars

The Wild (22-18-7) look to avoid their fifth consecutive loss when the Stars (24-20-2) return to the Xcel Energy Center Saturday night. Minnesota needs to boost its offense after being outscored 17-6 during an 0-3-1 road trip. Four players from the Houston Aeros will join the Wild for the game in St. Paul. Dallas is also only one loss away from its fifth consecutive defeat.
