Koivu vs. Koivu III
MONTREAL -- On Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota, they will do it all over again. In the red corner, Saku—older brother. In the green corner, Mikko—kid brother, ready for revenge.

For the third time ever and the first time in almost two years, the Koivu brothers will go head-to-head in a regular season NHL showdown. Captains of their respective clubs, with Mikko wearing the “C” for the month of October, the two siblings have split their first two encounters in their ongoing quest for family supremacy.
