Minnesota clips Ottawa


OTTAWA — Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo was certain his team would bounce back from a disappointing loss the night before. It almost always does.

On the heels of a 6-2 loss in Montreal, Wild center Mikko Koivu scored with 2:57 left in the third period to give Minnesota a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night at the Canadian Tire Centre.

The victory kept the Wild from what would have been just its second, two-game regulation time losing streak of the season.
