(Tempe, AZ)  —  Matt Boldy had a goal and an assist as the Wild held off the Coyotes for a 3-1 win on Wednesday night.  Joel Eriksson Ek and Jonas Brodin staked the Wild to a 2-0 lead before former Gopher Logan Cooley cut the lead in half early in the third.  But Boldy delivered the knock out punch with just under nine minutes to play as the Wild held on for a fourth straight win.  Marc Andre Fleury made 25 saves for his 10th win of the season.  The Wild have won seven of their last nine and are now five points in front of Arizona and just three points back of the Blues and Kings for the two wildcard spots in the West.  The Wild host the Sabres on Saturday at 4 P-M.
