Wild net overtime 4-3 win against Jets


The Wild won its third straight game with a Marco Scandella overtime goal sealing the 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets Sunday at home.

Star forward Zach Parise came back strong after sitting out five games due to a concussion, and he had two goals on the night. Scandella also returned to play after missing two games due to illness, which benched a few Wild players this weekend.

Nino Niederreiter got the first goal on a power play with a backhand shot as he went down. The assist came from Thomas Vanek and Justin Fotaine at 2:07 in the first period.

The first Parise goal came two minutes later with a slapshot at 4:11 assisted by Miko Koivu and Jason Pominville. Parise's second goal of the night was at 18:45 on a backhand shot assisted by Spurgeon and Pominville.

After a scoreless, penalty-riddled second period, the Jets scored three goals in the third period in less than five minutes. That third goal forced out Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom, and Darcy Kuemper filled in. Kuemper had three saves. Backstrom went 19-22.

Scandella came through at 1:01 in overtime with the game-winning goal. The assist came from Jason Pomiville and Mikael Grandlund.

The Wild are now 10-7-0 and are fourth in the Central Division. Next up, the Wild travel to Philadelphia to take on the Flyers at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20.
