A 4-3 win in Calgary was just what the Wild needed Monday night.

Jason Pominville scored two goals and Mikko Koivu and Pierre Marc-Bouchard also scored for the Wild.

Koivu scored in the first, Pominville's first goal came in the second, and Bouchard and Pominville put the Wild up 4-1 with goals 76 seconds apart in the third.

Little Falls native and former St. Cloud State forward Ben Hanowski scored for the Flames -- his first career goal in his first NHL game -- to cut the Flames' deficit to two. Calgary pulled its goalie and made it a one-goal game with 39 seconds to play, but Minnesota held on for the win.

The win snapped Minnesota's three-game losing streak and helped them jump from seventh to sixth in the Western Conference standings.

With just six games to play, the Wild has 49 points -- one point ahead of St. Louis and two points ahead of Detroit and Columbus.
