|Wild beat Blues in Overtime
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored in regulation and in the shootout, helping the Minnesota Wild end an eight-game losing streak by beating the St. Louis Blues 3-2 Tuesday night.
Chris Stewart scored twice for the fifth time in 20 games since joining the Blues, who overcame two late penalties that gave the Wild a two-man advantage for the first 1:06 of overtime.
Bouchard and Mikko Koivu beat Jaroslav Halak on the first two rounds of the shootout while Jose Theodore stopped two of the Blues' three attempts. Minnesota, which had been outscored 37-12 during the slump that dropped them to 12th in the Western Conference, also tied a franchise record with its 19th road victory.
