NHL: Minnesota 1, Dallas 0

Jan. 20, 2013 at 10:45 PM

ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Zach Parise scored his first goal for Minnesota and Josh Harding recorded a shutout Sunday in the Wild's 1-0 victory over Dallas.

Parise -- signed by Minnesota as a free agent along with defensemen Ryan Suter in July -- notched the game's only goal midway through the first period on assists from Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Dany Heatley.

Harding, meanwhile, turned aside all 24 shots he saw in racking up his seventh career whitewash for the Wild, who improved to 2-0 to start the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.

Swedish goalie Christopher Nilstorp stopped 31-of-32 shots in his NHL debut for the Stars, who were coming off a season-opening victory over Phoenix Saturday.
