Koivu set up two goals in Sunday's Game 3 victory over Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

The Wild captain now has four points -- all assists coming with the man advantage -- through three postseason games while his team trails 2-1 in the series. Minnesota was a heavy underdog heading into this matchup with the dynamic Jets, but they'll have a legitimate shot of advancing if Koivu and his teammates are able to continue converting on special teams.

Koivu fashioned three even-strength assists in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

This was the captain's second three-point outing of the season. Minnesota has clinched a playoff spot with one game to go, so Koivu's immediate goal will be leading this team past the first round for the first time in three years.

Koivu scored on his only shot attempt in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

Minnesota's captain only has 13 shots attempts in the past 10 games, so it's a bit surprising that he's connected twice over that span. Of course, Koivu's taken a step back offensively in every major offensive category this season. It's tough to explain why he's trending downward outside of his shooting percentage (9.0) dipping after he'd achieved conversion rates of 12.1 and 12.9, respectively, in the previous two campaigns.

Koivu was the lone goal scorer for the Wild in their 5-1 loss to the Avalanche on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The captain has managed four goals on only 11 shots during an eight-game hot stretch that's seen the Finn maintain a point-per-game pace. You won't see Koivu owners complaining about his No. 1 role on the power play, either, but he is still projected to fall short of his 2016-17 output, which is comprised of 58 points through 80 games.

Koivu had two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Koivu's quietly put together a five-game point streak, though this was his first multi-point effort in that stretch. Just six days before his 35th birthday, Koivu remains a dangerous offensive player. He's on pace to top 40 points for the 11th time in 13 NHL seasons.

Koivu scored a goal and added an assist during Tuesday's 8-3 win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Koivu finishes up February with four goals and three assists through 13 games, as he continues to post respectable secondary offense for the Wild and fantasy owners. His role on the No. 1 power-play will help buoy his value moving forward, but the 34-year-old veteran's scoring upside is capped at this stage of his career.

Koivu contributed a power-play goal and a helper in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Koivu lit the lamp for the first time since Jan. 4 while also ending a four-game point drought. Despite scoring just seven goals, Koivu's been able to provide decent value thanks to 21 helpers and 11 power-play points.

Koivu only has two goals in his last 40 games.

EDGE Analysis

Not all is lost, as the Finn has 18 assists in that time, so he hasn't been a total fantasy failure. Plus, there is reason to believe there might be more luck coming his way. Koivu only has a 5.2 shooting percentage, which is the worst of his career.

Koivu (illness) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's clash with the Flames, Megan Ryan of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Koivu missed Monday's practice due to an illness, but the Wild's captain is evidently feeling well enough to gut it out Tuesday. The 34-year-old pivot, who's notched six goals and 21 points in 42 games this campaign, will skate on Minnesota's second line and first power-play unit against Calgary.

Koivu's status against the Flames on Tuesday is uncertain, as he is suffering from the flu.

EDGE Analysis

Koivu's absence would force coach Bruce Boudreau to shuffle up his lines, including potentially returning Joel Eriksson Ek to his natural center position, as well as opening up a spot in the lineup for Marcus Foligno. Prior to falling ill, the veteran Koivu has tallied five points in his previous six outings. In addition to his even-strength contributions, the club would need to replace the 34-year-old on the power play, where he is averaging 2:49 of ice time.
