Former Wild head coach Mike Yeo had the last laugh on Tuesday evening in the Blues' 2-1 win over Minnesota.

David Perron and Vladimir Tarasenko lit the lamp for St. Louis. Mikko Koivu scored the lone goal for the Wild, but it came with just 10 seconds remaining in regulation.

Even though Minnesota had the shot advantage, 33-20, Bruce Boudreau was juggling lines all night.

At one point, he split up the Jason Zucker, Mikko Koivu and Mikael Granlund line which had been together since November.

Yeo took over for Ken Hitchcok in February after the Blues fired the veteran head coach. Since Yeo has taken over, the Blues have been one of the best teams in the Western Conference.

Next up for the Wild is the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
