The Minnesota Wild suffered their first regulation loss of the new year Tuesday night when they were beaten by the New Jersey Devils 4-3 at Xcel Energy Center.

One of the high points for the Wild was the first goal of the night. Jared Spurgeon dusted off his best Miguel Sano impression.

The Wild squandered 2-0 and 3-2 leads and New Jersey took their first lead with just 2:17 to play. The Devils have now won 6 of their last 7 games against the Wild.

The Wild host Arizona Thursday.
