Star Tribune's three stars

1. David Booth, Canucks: Speedster scored two of the three goals against Darcy Kuemper and was a plus-3.

2. Eddie Lack, Canucks: Made a series of huge saves on the Wild and 29 in all.

3. Alex Edler, Canucks: With the Wild trailing 2-1, the defenseman swiped Zach Parise's would-be tying goal off the goal line.
