Jason Pominville tied for 16th in the NHL with 30 goals, led the Wild with 60 points and recorded three points twice in Minnesota's final three regular-season games.

So the team obviously is counting on Pominville to help out in a big way in the first round of the playoffs, when Minnesota faces the Colorado Avalanche. Pominville, 31, often is overshadowed by captain Mikko Koivu and second-leading scorer Zach Parise, but there is no doubt the Wild will be expecting production from Pominville against the Avalanche. "He can do it in so many different ways," NBC analyst Pierre McGuire said. "He's a 5-on-5 scorer, he's a power-play threat, both from the top of the circle and also up by the blue line because he's a great distributor and he can also shoot the wicked one-timer. You put it all together, and he might be the most well-rounded player on their team in terms of being a pure scorer, a really good defensive player and a special teams specialist. There are other guys that are flashier - Koivu, Parise. But Jason Pominville just does his job all the time."
