Scandella returns, but Wild lose to Stars 3-2 in OT


Minnesota Wild 2

Dallas Stars 3 (OT)

John Klingberg scored at 3:18 of overtime to give the Dallas Stars a 3-2 victory against the Wild Saturday night in Dallas.

1. Second straight OT game

It was the second overtime game in as many nights for the Wild, although they won in Carolina Friday night 3-2. That was the Wild's first overtime win of the season. The loss to Dallas snaps Minnesota's three-game winning streak.

2. A goalie duel

The first two periods of the game were a duel between Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk and Kari Lehtonen of Dallas, the Star Tribune says.

Dubnyk made several key saves after giving up a goal in the first. And Lehtonen kept the Wild out of the net until Nino Niederreiter bounced one in off his leg in the second period to tie the game at 1-1.

Dubnyk had 33 saves on the night and Lehtonen had 22.

3. Scandella returns

Marco Scandella returned to the ice for the Wild after being away from the team for the past week dealing with a private family matter. He tied the game at 7:05 of the third period with his third goal of the season.
