The Minnesota Wild got off to a nice start on Saturday night against the Dallas Stars with this short-handed goal from Mikael Granlund.

Captain Mikko Koivu led the charge from Minnesota's end and went coast-to-coast the other way with an amazing deke that fooled Dallas' defenseman John Klingberg.

Check out the video below.
