ST. PAUL, Minn. – Branko Radivojevic scored twice and Brian Rolston had a goal and an assist to lead the Minnesota Wild past the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Tuesday night for a split of their home-and-home series.

Pavol Demitra and Mark Parrish also scored for the Wild, who won in regulation for only the second time in 21 games. Minnesota has five other wins during that stretch.

Trevor Linden and Kevin Bieksa scored for Vancouver, which lost for the first time in four games.

Coming off a winless three-game swing through western Canada in which it scored just four goals, Minnesota improved to 13-3-1 at home with its fourth straight win in the Xcel Energy Center. Only Anaheim (14) has more home wins.
