The big news surrounding the Minnesota Wild lately has been the switching in/out of Josh Harding and Nicklas Backstrom.
All this talk of who's tending the net has overshadowed some of the work the Wild captain has put into the success of the team this season. Mikko Koivu has really broke out offensively this year. Just this past week he scored an intense shorthanded goal to tie in the second period against the Blues.
He forced overtime with a power-play one-timer with 1:38 left. He scored with his signature forehand-deke-backhand. Mikko Koivu is back, baby.
