ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Radim Vrbata scored two goals and Thomas Greiss made 28 saves to lead the Phoenix Coyotes over the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Wednesday night.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Coyotes, who are 6-0-2 in their past eight games in Minnesota. The Wild have lost two straight and scored a total of one goal in that stretch.

The Wild were playing their first game without leading scorer Zach Parise, who is expected to miss 2 to 3 weeks with a foot injury suffered on Monday in St. Louis.

Minnesota's offense was sluggish for much of the game, especially in the first period when the Wild were outshot 12-5 and fell behind 1-0.
