Moulson returned to Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for the first time since the Islanders traded him to the Buffalo Sabres on Oct. 27, 2013 in a deal that brought Thomas Vanek to New York. Vanek (Montreal Canadiens) and Moulson were sent elsewhere at the trade deadline. Moulson scored 118 goals over the course of four-plus seasons with the Islanders.
Justin Fontaine had a goal and an assist for the Wild, who snapped a two-game skid. Jared Spurgeon, Mikael Granlund and Clayton Stoner also lit the lamp.
Bryzgalov made his second start in a Minnesota uniform since he was acquired from the Edmonton Oilers. Bryzgalov's previous outing with the Wild was a 3-2 shootout loss on March 9 to St. Louis in which he made 20 saves.
Anders Nilsson gave up all six goals on 22 shots for the Islanders.
