Wild beat Red Wings for 4th in a row

Associated Press  |  Last updated March 20, 2013
Devin Setoguchi had two goals, Niklas Backstrom made 36 saves and the streaking Minnesota Wild beat the Detroit Red Wings, 4-2, on Wednesday night. Kyle Brodziak, Mikko Koivu also scored for Minnesota, which won its fourth straight. Pierre-Marc Bouchard had two assists. Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller scored for Detroit. Minnesota led 1-0 after the first period despite being outshot 17-5. Setoguchi opened the scoring 2:04 into the game when he swept in a shot from the bottom of the right circle for his 10th goal. Setoguchi's second goal of the game came on the power play with 2:45 left in the second period, putting in a rebound to give Minnesota a 4-1 lead. Brodziak's power-play goal 3:51 into the second period made it 2-0 when he put in a one-timer shot from the edge of the crease, his fifth goal, off a pass from Jared Spurgeon. Nyquist put Detroit on the scoreboard 9:09 into the middle period with his first goal. He capitalized on Spurgeon's turnover at the Red Wings' blue line for his first goal of the season, on a breakaway. Koivu restored the Wild's two-goal lead with 9:11 left in the second on spin-around shot from the high slot, which went in off Jimmy Howard's glove for Koivu's seventh goal. Miller got his third goal of the season in the final minute to cap the scoring. An apparent goal by Detroit's Jordin Tootoo 7:30 into the first period was waved off because of a high stick call. But replays showed the puck went off the glove of the Wild's Dany Heatley instead of the stick of Miller. Notes: Detroit RW Patrick Eaves missed the game with a sore cheekbone. The Red Wings recalled Nyquist, a center, from their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids on Wednesday. ... Minnesota C Mike Rupp and D Tom Gilbert both missed their second games with lower-body injuries.
