      Wild's Mikko Koivu: Records three assists to extend point streak

      Koivu extended his point streak to eight games Friday, collecting three assists in a win over Chicago. What a start for Koivu, who has only been held off the scoresheet once in 10 games this season. With three goals and 11 points in 10 games, the center has been a consistent and reliable source of point production. Coming off a 54-point season, it's unlikely he keeps producing at a point-per-game pace, but as long as he stays healthy, he should rack up around 60 points.

      Wild's Mikko Koivu: Quietly on five-game point streak

      Koivu picked up an assist Saturday in Minnesota's 3-0 win over Anaheim. The point extended his point streak to five games (two goals, three assists). It's been a strong, yet quiet, start for Minny's famous Finn. He has six points (two goals, four helpers) in seven games and they haven't been easy opponents -- they've faced the Ducks (twice), Kings and Blues, along with the Jackets and Avs. It's unlikely he will set a new career mark in points at 32, but he might just be able to stabilize the decline in his output over the last four seasons.
