Bruins 3, Wild 2 (OT)
Left winger Loui Eriksson scored in overtime as Boston snapped a
three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over Minnesota.
Carl Soderberg and Patrice Bergeron also scored for a Boston team
that had lost six of the previous seven games. Goalie Niklas
Svedberg, back in the net after a five-game layoff, stopped 35
Minnesota shots in the win.
The Wild out-shot the Bruins by a wide margin, getting goals from
center Kyle Brodziak and right winger Jason Pominville but were
unable to put anther puck past Svedberg. Goalie Niklas Backstrom had
22 saves for Minnesota.
The winning goal came when Eriksson received a cross ice-pass and
slapped the puck behind Backstrom, who had been pulled out of
position. It was the scorer's second goal in three games.
