ST. PAUL, Minn. — Marian Gaborik marked his first game as an opposing player in Minnesota with an assist during a three-goal second period for the New York Rangers, and Martin Biron made 26 saves in a 5-2 win over the Wild on Saturday night.
Over the last 12 minutes of that lopsided middle frame, Artem Anisimov, Michael Del Zotto and Alex Frolov scored for the Rangers and the Wild went without a shot on goal.
Gaborik, the Wild's first draft pick and the 10-year-old franchise's most productive and prolific player despite persistent injuries, got the second assist on Frolov's wraparound that glanced off John Madden's stick with 1 minute left in the second period.
Brandon Dubinsky and Ruslan Fedotenko tacked on goals for the Rangers in the third period, minimizing the impact of scores for the Wild by Matt Cullen and Martin Havlat.
