Wild Notch Victory

Wild Notch Victory

Mikko Koivu scored the tiebreaking goal in the closing minutes of the third period and added two assists to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.

Koivu netted the winner with 2:57 left, allowing the Wild to rebound from a 6-2 loss in Montreal on Tuesday.

Former Senators forward Dany Heatley had a goal and an assist for the Wild (14-5-4), as did Jonas Brodin. Jason Pominville had the other goal, and Zach Parise had two assists.

Milan Michalek scored on the power play as the teams approached the midway point of the third period to pull the Senators even with the Wild. It appeared that goal would at least get the Senators to overtime.

Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad also scored for the Senators (8-10-4), who have lost three straight and four of five.
