Wild center Eric Staal had to leave the game against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night because of a high stick that he took right to the face.

Staal returned before the end of regulation but Edmonton tied it up with 4 minutes left, sending the game to overtime.

After neither team scored in OT, things were settled in a shootout that went to six rounds.

Sure enough, it was Staal who netted the game-winner in the final round to give Minnesota the 3-2 win.
