A Wild Win By Minnesota

Updated:
UNDATED (AP) -- There's been a tremendous invididual performance on NHL ice. Marian Gaborik posted the NHL's first five-goal game in a decade, lifting the Minnesota Wild to a 6-3 win over the New York Rangers.

Gaborik's outburst was the biggest in the league since Sergei Fedorov scored five for Detroit on December 26th, 1996, in an overtime game against Washington. Pittsburgh's Mario Lemieux was the last to net five in regulation, pulling off the feat on March 26th, 1996 versus St. Louis.

Gaborik had a goal in the first period, two on power plays in the second, and found the net twice more in the third to set the team record for tallies in a game. No Wild player had ever had four goals in a game.

With two assists, Gaborik tied his career high with six points. This one got him carried off the ice by teammates Sean Hill and Keith Carney.

Pavol Demitra, Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Aaron Voros added two points apiece for Minnesota, which extended its winning streak to four games.
