Martin Skoula's centring attempt deflected off Walz, who was being checked into the net by Jason Chimera. It took about five minutes for the review that confirmed the goal.

Brian Rolston had two power-play goals, and Pavol Demitra also scored in Minnesota's sixth straight home victory.

Chimera, Joakim Lindstrom and Alexander Svitov scored for Columbus.
