Zach Parise found the back of the net in Wednesday's 4-3 OT loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Unfortunately for Minnesota, Jonathan Toews scored the game-winning goal in overtime. Parise has now scored three goals in his last five games. He's up to 11 goals and 25 points in 44 games this season.

Coach Bruce Boudreau met with Zach Parise on Tuesday to discuss the winger's play of late and it seemed to spark him in Thursday's 5-4 win over San Jose.

Parise had a goal on five shots and contributed two assists versus the Sharks. "I told him I have complete faith in him, and I know his head is down because he wants to do so well so badly," said Boudreau. "I just said, 'I think you're pressing a little bit.'" Parise has had trouble finding a groove this year because he has been hurt and sick, which has led to plenty of absences from practices. He has seven goals and 18 points in 28 games, but there is still time for him to turn it around.
