Wild Score Six To Top Kings Tuesday
The Minnesota Wild beat the Los Angeles Kings 6-3 on Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center. The Wild went ahead 2-1 on a goal by the Kings with an Erik Haula score at 1:36 of the first period, then got a Jason Pominville goal late in the first for a 2-1 lead after one.
Minnesota then scored three goals in the second period to pull away from the Kings. Charlie Coyle started the scoring burst with a power play goal, followed by even-strength goals from Mikko Koivu and Teemu Pulkinnen to give the Wild a 5-1 lead after two.
The Kings made a comeback attempt in the third with a pair of goals, but Jared Spurgeon's tally into the empty net sealed the win for the Wild.
