Coyle’s Shootout Goal Gives Wild 3-2 Win Over Blackhawks
CHICAGO (AP) — Charlie Coyle scored the only goal in the shootout to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.
Coyle, Minnesota's first shooter, beat Chicago's Scott Darling a night after he and Zach Parise scored in the tiebreaker in a home win over Carolina.
Nino Niederreiter had his 18th goal and added an assist, and Eric Haula also scored in regulation as the Wild improved to 4-0 against Chicago this season. Devan Dubnyk stopped 29 shots through overtime and then was perfect in the shootout against Chicago's Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin.
Andrew Shaw scored his 12th goal to end an 11-game drought and linemate Richard Panik connected to end a 14-game streak without a goal to bring the Blackhawks back from a 2-0 deficit.
Darling made his third straight start and finished with 32 saves
