Devin Setoguchi scored in the fourth round of the shootout, spoiling a strong night by Edmonton Oilers goalie Nikolai Khabibulin and sending the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory Thursday night.
Khabibulin was nearly impenetrable, standing firm during a third period in which the Wild outshot the Oilers 15-1. Matt Cullen, who had the only goal for Minnesota in regulation, scored first in the shootout before Khabibulin denied the next two shooters.
Ryan Smyth had the goal for the Oilers, who have lost 17 straight games to the Wild at Xcel Energy Center. They lost all six to Minnesota last season, getting outscored 23-9.
