DENVER (AP) Eric Staal and the Minnesota Wild have their timing down. Too bad they can't pass on the down time.
Staal had two goals, including the tiebreaker on a second-period power play, Devan Dubnyk made 20 saves and the Wild rolled into the All-Star break by beating the slumping Colorado Avalanche 5-2 on Wednesday night.
"You certainly wish you could keep playing if they're going to play like that," Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It was really fun to watch."
