Wild 6, Predators 4
SAINT PAUL, Minn. — Jason Zucker’s backhand shot with 2:55 remaining in the third period completed a crazy comeback as Minnesota won its fourth in a row and snapped Nashville’s five-game winning streak.
The Wild trailed 4-2 with seven minutes to play before Jared Spurgeon and Eric Staal scored to tie the game, and Zucker eventually won it. Zucker has eight goals in his last five games.
Spurgeon added an empty-net goal from the far blue line with 67 seconds left. Matt Dumba and Nino Niederreiter also scored for Minnesota. Devin Dubnyk, who recorded shutouts in his three previous games, made 26 saves for the Wild.
