Minnesota Wild Halt 8 Game Skid
The Minnesota Wild ended a rough 8 game losing streak with a 3-2 shootout victory over the St. Louis Blues, in St. Louis. Eric Nystrom and Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored in regulation for the Minnesota Wild. Mikko Koivu and Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored in the shootout to secure the victory. It is a bittersweet victory, since the odds of making the playoffs are virtually 100-1 but at least it stops the 8 game losing streak. Next up is the Edmonton Oilers at the Xcel Energy Center on Thursday night.
