Red Wings Over Wild in 3-2 Shootout
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Darren Helm scored in the eighth round of a shootout, and the Detroit Red Wings outlasted the Minnesota Wild 3-2 on Saturday night.
Helm came down the slot, cut to his forehand and let go with a low wrist shot. Officials on the ice ruled that Devan Dubnyk stopped the puck in time; however, video review showed the stop came after the puck crossed the goal line.
Gustav Nyquist and Riley Sheahan scored in both the shootout and regulation for Detroit, which ended a three-game slide and is 2-3-2 in its past seven. Jimmy Howard stopped 22 shots.
Jason Pominville and Thomas Vanek had shootout goals for Minnesota.
Zach Parise scored twice in regulation for the Wild, who played without captain Mikko Koivu. The center participated in warmups but was a late scratch with an eye injury. He is day to day.
