The Wild superstar had a pair of assists in a 4-3 victory.

Kirill Kaprizov had two assists and Victor Rask scored the game-winner in overtime as the Minnesota Wild defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 on Saturday night.

For the second straight night, the Ducks got on the board first with Rickard Rakell's ninth goal of the season. But after Troy Terry received a double-minor for high sticking, Kaprizov dashed through the Anaheim defense and put the puck on the stick of Jared Spurgeon for his seventh goal of the season.

Kaprizov recorded another assist in the second period when he fed Ryan Hartman for his seventh goal of the season.

51 seconds later, Nick Bonino extended Minnesota's lead with his 10th goal of the year and gave the Wild a 3-1 advantage heading into the third period.

But the Ducks rallied for Ryan Miller, who was playing in the final game of his 18-year career. Trevor Zegras' third goal of the year and Max Comtois's goal with 26 seconds remaining forced overtime.

That set the stage for Rask, who scored the game-winner midway through the extra period to give Minnesota the victory.

The Wild (35-14-5) will start a two-game series with the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night.
