The Minnesota Wild took full advantage of a 5-on-3 power play against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday, scoring a pair of goals in rapid succession. 

Ducks forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler took delay-of-game and high-sticking penalties, respectively, early in the second period, and the Wild responded with two goals 11 seconds apart.

Mikko Koivu scored to cut the Ducks' lead to 3-1 and Zach Parise followed by snapping a shot past goaltender Frederik Andersen to bring the Wild within one.

Parise criticized Wild fans after Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens after the crowd at Xcel Energy Center booed the Wild during a failed five-minute power play. Minnesota went 0-for-5 with the man advantage in that game despite the victory.
