The Wild were tied for an N-H-L low 13 points entering the day amid a road-heavy early schedule. They are 4-1-1 at home. Devan Dubnyk made 27 saves for Minnesota. Conor Garland and Lawson Crouse scored for Arizona, which came back twice to the tie the game. Antti Raanta stopped 31 shots. It was the second time in six days that the Wild edged the Coyotes.
