For the second game in a row, the Chicago Blackhawks had an opponent right where they wanted them only to see a win slip away. Defenseman Marco Scandella scored his first goal of the season with less than two minutes remaining in regulation, lifting the Minnesota Wild to a 4-3 come-from-behind win over the Blackhawks on Thursday.

St. Louis Blues forward David Backes remembers fondly the games he played against T.J. Oshie while the two were Western Collegiate Hockey Association rivals. Oshie and Backes are not only teammates now but also linemates for one of the NHL’s top teams.
Alexander Steen had gone four games without scoring for the St. Louis Blues, which the left winger decided was long enough. Steen, who had vaulted to the top of NHL scorers with 17 goals in the first 18 games, ended his mini-slump with two goals in the Blues' 3-0 win Monday night over the Minnesota Wild.
Charlie Coyle scored the decisive goal in the fourth round of the shootout and Niklas Backstrom turned aside 37 shots in an emergency start as visiting Minnesota recorded its third straight one-goal victory over Winnipeg.
Right winger Charlie Coyle’s hot streak continued at the perfect time for the Minnesota Wild on Friday night. Coyle’s goal late in the third period broke a 2-2 deadlock and lifted Minnesota to a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers.
A quartet of Minnesota Wild goals, and 19 saves by goalie Josh Harding, kept the New Jersey Devils winless, and scoreless, in November.
Mikael Granlund, Torrey Mitchell, Dany Heatley and Jason Pominville scored for the Wild (8-4-3), and Harding recorded his second shutout of the season, as the Devils (3-7-4) were blanked for the second night in a row in the Minnesota’s 4-0 win on Sunday.
