Minnesota Beats Blackhawks in Shootout
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Mikko Koivu and Owen Nolan scored in the shootout after Minnesota scored four unanswered goals in the third period, and the Wild beat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-5 in a shootout on Saturday night.

Trailing 5-1 with less than 14 minutes left in regulation, the Wild got goals from Kim Johnsson, Mikko Koivu, Marek Zidlicky and Guillaume Latendresse to send the game to overtime.

Patrick Sharp, Jonathan Toews, Kris Versteeg, Troy Brouwer and Marian Hossa scored in regulation for Chicago, which had surrendered just 27 third-period goals all season before Saturday. The Blackhawks snapped a five-game winning streak.
