Parise scored a goal and had two assists in Thursday's win over Colorado.

The Wild had a 6-0 blowout win over Colorado so don't expect this outing every night, but Parise could improve his numbers with the increase in talent on the Wild's top three lines.

The Wild held Parise out of Practice Sunday after he got banged up in Saturday's game. He says it's just a maintenance day and that he'll be playing again Monday, according to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune.

The team's actions echo that, as Mike Yeo has Parise penciled into the top line for Monday's home game against Pittsburgh.

Zach Parise is happy that coach Mike Yeo received a three-year contract extension.

The Wild went 43-27-12 in the regular season, getting to the playoffs as a wild-card team. They ended up losing to the Blackhawks in the second round. "Very well-deserved," said Parise. "I think he did a really good job - [the entire coaching staff] all did a really good job - down the stretch for us, especially in the playoffs. I mean, we were really prepared. We knew exactly what to expect. We exploited weaknesses. It's a big chess game, the playoffs. I think they did a really good job making adjustments on the fly. It was real impressive."

The Wild got their money's worth from captain Zach Parise in these playoffs, as their prized free agent signing from 2012 played to his potential during Minnesota's playoff run.

Parise notched 14 points in the Wild's 13 game post-season, which ended after Patrick Kane buried Minnesota in overtime on Tuesday night. Parise and fellow free agent signing Ryan Suter brought the Wild to the first round of the playoffs last season after a four year absence from the post-season, then improved this season by knocking off the Colorado Avalanche in the first round, then playing a solid series versus the defending champion Blackhawks.

Zach Parise notched a goal and an assist in Minnesota's 4-0 win over Chicago on Tuesday night.

The Wild needed their big guns to step up to get them back into their second-round series against the Blackhawks and they did just that. Parise earned an assist on Mikael Granlund's first goal of the match and then he scored on the power play late in the third period. Parise had one goal and no helpers a year ago versus the Hawks in the postseason. He has 13 points, including three in Round 2, in 10 2014 playoff matches.

Simply put, Minnesota Wild stars Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu and Ryan Suter seem to have no solution for the Chicago Blackhawks in playoff competition.

Both Parise and Suter had matching -3 ratings in a 4-1 Game 2 loss while Koivu wasn't much better with a -2 mark. As strong a team as Chicago might be, it's difficult not to be disappointed with the lifeless work of these three highly paid players.
