ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Zach Parise and Jason Pominville scored in the shootout, lifting the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night.
Parise tied the game late in the third period for Minnesota, which has won five of six and is 8-1-2 in its last 11. The Wild have been involved in three straight shootouts — winning two.
Mason Raymond scored a power-play goal for Toronto, which has scored just three regulation goals in its last four outings. Jonathan Bernier had 33 saves.
In the shootout, Parise beat Bernier low on the left side before Josh Harding stopped Raymond. Mikko Koivu was stopped by Bernier and Phil Kessel lost control of the puck before Pominville beat Bernier through the pads for the win.
Harding had 19 saves in relief of Niklas Backstrom.
