Zach Parise scored his seventh goal of the season in Minnesota's 4-3 shootout loss to the Avalanche on Thursday.

The tally snaps a four-game goalless stretch for the Minnesota captain after his fantastic start to the season and gives him 11 points on the year. Mikko Koivu and Mike Rupp also scored in the losing effort while Dany Heatley registered two assists - his first points in nine games.
