Heatley, Wild hold on to beat Phoenix, 4-3


Jason Zucker scored just over 90 seconds into the game and the Wild held on for a 4-3 win at Phoenix on Thursday night.

For Zucker, it was his third goal in five games. Dany Heatley tallied the next two scores for the Wild for his third, 2-goal game of the season and 62nd career multi-goal game of his career. Jared Spurgeon scored the fourth Wild goal.

Matt Cullen finished with two assists. He has compiled 10 points in his last 13 games.

The Wild led 4-1 in the third but a flukey goal, coupled with another score by the Coyotes with about one minute left in the game made things interesting, but Minnesota was able to hold on for the win.

Enforcer Mike Rupp got into his first fight since being traded to Minnesota from New York. He rocked Phoenix's Paul Bissonnette. Look for the blood running down Bissonnette's face after the fight.
