Parise on booing fans: 'You want us to score 4 power-play goals and lose?'

Brace Hemmelgarn / USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Wild defeated the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 Wednesday night, but Zach Parise wasn't happy with the fans at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

The Wild went 0-for-5 on the power play in the game, including an unsuccessful five-minute advantage when Canadiens forward Eric Tangradi was given a major penalty and a game misconduct in the third period.

Fans booed the Wild during the lackluster power play, despite the fact that Minnesota led 2-0 at the time.

"We won the game," Parise said afterwards, according to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune. "You want us to score four power-play goals and lose? We beat arguably the best team in the East."

While the Canadiens aren't exactly the best team in the Eastern Conference (the Tampa Bay Lightning, Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders would like a word) the Wild improved to 14-9-1 and  7-2-1 in their last 10 games.
