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

Chicago challenged the marker, claiming the play was offside, but after a lengthy and controversial review it was determined to be inconclusive so the goal counted.

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.

He has 83 goals and 166 points in 206 career games following the All-Star break with an 11.6% clip, so there's room for hope.

Zach Parise hasn't registered a point in his last five games.

His last point was an assist against the Ducks back on Jan. 8. It's been a disappointing year for Parise, who has 20 points in 35 games this season. He could bounce back in the second half of the year, we just wouldn't count on it.
Jan 21 - 10:22 AM

Jan 7 - 7:31 PM

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.
