With Justin Fontaine in the box for tripping, Zach Parise opened the scoring with his second of the playoffs.

Matt Cooke started the play by causing Kevin Shattenkirk to turn the puck over at the Wild blue line.

Parise then beat Blues’ starter Jake Allen from a bad angle.

It makes one wonder…

Parise is the sixth player in franchise history to score a shorthanded goal in the playoffs.

Minnesota is 2-0 in the series when scoring first.
