Parise scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Friday's Game 1 loss to Chicago.

After scoring twice in Game 6 of Round 1 against Blues, Parise picked up right where he left off in Round 2, netting his fourth goal of the postseason. He's got seven points in his last five games and now has nine points in these playoffs -- second-most in the NHL. Skating on the top line and fist power-play unit, expect the 30-year-old to continue to be a big factor in Round 2.

Parise netted a pair of goals, including a shorthanded marker, in Sunday's series-clinching Game 6 win over the Blues.

A great outing for Parise, who was dominant in Round 1. The 30-year-old had three goals and seven points in six games, helping the Wild move on to Round 2 to face Chicago. The top-line winger is sporting a solid plus-3 rating in these playoffs and will need to be at this best if the Wild hope to have any chance of getting past the Blackhawks in the second round.

Parise notched his first goal of the playoffs and added an assist in Monday's Game 3 win over the Blues.

It's been a highly productive three games for Parise as he's racked up four points in the series thus far. He dealt with what was being described as a "nagging" injury toward the end of the season, but he appears to be past that as he's returned to his place as one of the top goal-scorers around.

Parise collected a pair of empty-net assists in Thursday's Game 1 win over the Blues.

They're cheap points, but Parise won't complain about the chance to pad his stats with no one in the opposing net. Whatever nagging ailment bothered him at the end of the year seems to no longer be an issue.

Parise (undisclosed) will play Saturday against the Blues.

Parise was one of three players that missed Thursday's game against the Predators due to a "nagging" injury, but he'll get in one final tune-up Saturday before the postseason commences. The Wild's star winger has posted 32 goals and 29 assists over 73 games this season, giving him his highest point total since the 2011-12 campaign.

Parise will miss Thursday's game against the Predators due to what coach Mike Yeo described as a "nagging" injury, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

With the Wild having clinched a playoff berth with a win over the Blackhawks on Tuesday, Parise will be given the night off to recuperate from the wear and tear he's accumulated over the season. The injury shouldn't be viewed as anything that will limit Parise going forward, as Yeo suggested that Parise and the other two regulars that will sit out Thursday (Nino Niederreiter and Thomas Vanek) would play in Saturday's regular-season finale in St. Louis.

Parise scored two goals, one of which came on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to Detroit.

He has seven points, including five goals, in his last nine games. He's a steady source of shots on goal and his current 32 goals are his best total since 2009-10. Stick him in and ride him hard -- goal scorers like him are hard to come by.

Parise scored for the second straight game Friday, potting his 30th tally of the season and recording seven shots on goal in a win over Calgary.

That's three goals in four games for Parise, who hits the 30-goal mark for the sixth time in his career and for the first time with Minnesota. He's now up to 58 points and a plus-19 rating in 68 games on the season. With 238 shots on goal, 41 PIM, and nine power-play tallies, the all-around fantasy stud should be rolled out with confidence every game.

Parise, who left Friday's practice early due to some minor tightness, is on the ice for warmups and will play Saturday against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Parise's chances of playing never appeared to be in any serious peril. The winger, who has amassed 27 goals and 55 points in 64 games, should see his usual allotment of ice time on the Wild's top line.

Parise left Friday's practice because of some minor tightness, but he is expected to be fine for Saturday's game against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The location of the tightness wasn't specified, further indicating that the issue isn't serious. The minor injury is still worth keeping an eye on, as it's somewhat worrisome that Parise made an early exit from practice. He's been healthy since recovering from a concussion in November.
