WILD 4, DUCKS 2
Mats Zuccarello scored the tying goal on a breakaway and assisted on Eric Staal’s go-ahead goal early in the third period as Minnesota snapped its five-game road losing streak with a victory over Anaheim.
Kevin Fiala also scored and Alex Stalock made 29 saves for the Wild, who came back from a two-goal deficit for only their second win in nine road games this season. Zach Parise added an empty-netter to cap Minnesota’s four-goal rally, which provided a much-needed boost for the last-place club in the opener of a four-game West Coast trip.
Jacob Larsson got his first career goal and Rickard Rakell also scored for the Ducks, who failed to earn a point for the first time in four games on their seven-game homestand. Anaheim also lost for the first time in nine games this season when taking a lead into the third period.
