ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Devin Setoguchi's power-play goal at 4:21 of overtime gave Minnesota a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators and snapped the Wild's three-game losing streak on Saturday night. Setoguchi took a pass from Mikko Koivu and fired a shot past Chris Mason for his first goal of the season and the Wild's 23rd in 11 games. Cal Clutterbuck also scored, and Niklas Backstrom stopped 25 shots for Minnesota. Paul Gaustad scored for Nashville, which had a four-game winning streak broken. Gaustad was whistled for a hand-pass penalty on a faceoff at 2:48 of overtime. Gaustad held his hands up in bewilderment as he skated to the penalty box, and coach Barry Trotz yelled at the officials. Mason -- starting in place of Pekka Rinne -- turned aside a couple of Wild scoring chances, but couldn't stop Setoguchi's shot. Nashville took a 1-0 lead midway through the first period after Craig Smith charged past defenseman Ryan Suter to set up Gaustad's goal. The Wild invested 196 million to bring in Suter and high-scoring forward Zach Parise during the offseason, but the investment hasn't resulted in more offense yet. Wild fans booed the home team during a 4-1 loss to Vancouver on Thursday, and were restless on Saturday before Clutterbuck tied the game at 1 by tipping in Suter's shot from the point at 12:59 of the second. Nashville entered the game allowing only 1.81 goals per game, lowest average in the NHL. The Wild came out firing, though, heeding coach Mike Yeo's advice to shoot more. They held a 10-6 edge in shots after one period. Rinne has turned away 112 of the last 115 shots he faced, but Mason got the nod because the Predators will be playing in Chicago on Sunday. In his second start of the season -- both against Minnesota -- Mason stopped 30 shots. Backstrom, who was pulled early in Thursday's loss, is 19-2-4 in games after being removed for non-injury reasons. NOTES: Gaustad's goal was his first since last Feb. 19. ... Wild forward Dany Heatley has no points in six games after he scored goals in four of five games. ... Parise has one point in six games after totaling nine in his first five. ... The Wild have won just two of nine against Nashville.
