The Minnesota Wild got off to a hot start in Dallas on Saturday against the Stars. By the time the 1st period was five-minutes old, the Wild already had 3 goals on their first 3 shots.

Mikko Koivu, Eric Staal and Matt Dumba all scored for Minnesota.

Although, the Wild may have to give credit to Dallas defenseman Johnny Oduya, as he deflected Koivu's shot into his own net.

Still 3 goals in that short of a span is incredible.
