It almost seems like the Wild like to keep it close.

After all, Minnesota leads the NHL in games decided by one-goal.

But Mike Yeo and Co. left the home crowd at Xcel with a victory, spearheaded by the Wild's second goal- an unassisted effort from Guillaume Latendresse.

The Wild will look to make it five-straight as they head to Calgary at the start of a challenging road trip.
