Vancouver Canucks vs. Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild joined the NHL for the 2000-01 season. It marked the return of the league to Minnesota for the first time since the North Stars moved to Dallas. Despite being an expansion team, the Wild fared well against the Canucks early on. More recently, the Canucks have had an edge in wins. The two teams met in the playoffs for the first time in 2003.

Historical Notes: Daniel Sedin was the first Canuck to score against the Wild ... During the 2003 playoffs, Canucks General Manager Brian Burke stated that the Wild weren't a team, but a cult ... Geoff Sanderson was credited with the last game-tying goal in Canuck history during a 1-1 tie with Minnesota (March 10, 2004) ... Markus Naslund recorded his ninth career hat trick against the Wild (November 21, 2007) ... When the Wild scored at 16:38 of the first period (December 2, 2007), it ended Roberto Luongo's shutout sequence at 212 minutes and 12 seconds.
