The North Stars hold serve at home against the struggling Oilers to pull 4 points ahead of the Red Wings for the last playoff spot in the Norris
After a scoreless 1st period, Mike Modano scored on an outside shot, shortly after the Oilers cleared it down the ice at the end of a PP
The powerplays called by the referee were inequitable.  Minnesota had 5 opportunities, while the Oilers did not get a chance with a man advantage
Mike Gartner scored his 17th 2:23 after Modano broke the ice by penetrating on Steve Smith after Anderson broke down in his own zone
Kurri scored later in the 2nd to make it close, but it was Minnesota's night, holding Edmonton to 18 shots and 9 for the final 40 minutes.  Modano set up McRae with 6:24 left to go up 3-1
