ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Minnesota enjoyed its most productive 60 minutes in franchise history Wednesday night as Eric Chouinard scored twice en route to a 7-4 win over Chicago.

Defenseman Nick Schultz, Richard Park and Pasca Dupuis each added a goal and an assist for the Wild, who had never scored as many as seven goals in 287 games since breaking into the NHL.

Chouinard recorded his second career multi-goal game, getting the Wild within 3-2 at 4:32 of the second period before giving them a 5-4 lead with 10:02 to play.

Dupuis scored less than two minutes later and Antti Laaksonen added an empty-netter for the Wild, who snapped a seven-game winless drought (0-2-5), during which they totaled only 12 goals.

Chicago lost its 14th straight road game.
