2. Super power play

Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller may have nightmares about the Wild's power play. Minnesota peppered Miller during their five power play opportunities Tuesday night.

Minnesota netted three power play goals and Miller made some terrific saves to rob a few others.

The Wild finished with 41 shots on goal in the decisive victory.

3. Koivu nets his 150th career goal

One of Vanek's prettiest assists came on Mikko Koivu's 150th career goal midway through the second.
