Mikko Koivu had two assists in Sunday's Game 6 loss to the Stars.
The Minnesota Wild were eliminated from the playoffs, but Koivu finished strong, racking up three goals and five points in his last four games. The veteran had 17 goals and 56 points in the regular season and has proven he's one of the more reliable fantasy producers around when he's healthy.
Mikko Koivu tied the game late in the third period, before scoring in overtime Friday against the Stars in Game 5.
A clutch performance from the captain, whose two goals helped Minnesota live to fight another day. Koivu has now scored three times this postseason, including two game-winning goals. The top-line forward has logged over 22:00 of ice time in each of the last two games and will continue to play a big role moving forward.
Mikko Koivu scored the game-winning goal -- a power-play marker -- in Monday's 5-3 victory over Dallas in Game 3.
What a time for the 33-year-old to break out of his 10-game goal drought. Captain Koivu had received plenty of ice time in the series' first two games (19:29 and 20:02) but like most of the Minnesota Wild players, had nothing to show for it. Koivu hasn't been quite as productive in his playoff career (0.43 points per game in 42 contests) as in the regular season (0.73 in 763), but he's still a key cog in the Wild attack and will be relied upon further with Game 4 approaching Wednesday.
Koivu is in the midst of another impressive stretch, notching points in six of the last seven, which includes four straight. In that seven-game span, the 33-year-old has two goals and seven helpers, adding in a useful six PIM as well. The center has had multiple lengthy streaks this season and could extend this one further as Minnesota is on fire as a club.
Mikko Koivu registered an assist on all three of Zach Parise's goals -- one on the power play -- adding four PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Flames.
Koivu has now reached the scoresheet in four of the last five, totaling two markers and five helpers in that span. The 33-year-old center is enjoying life on the first line next to Charlie Coyle and Zach Parise, sitting at 53 points on the year and remaining a threat for big games. Koivu has nine multi-point outings this campaign and he has the potential to churn out a few more before the end of the season.
