Wild streak ends, fall 2-1
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Bryan Little scored a power-play goal with 5 minutes remaining in regulation, lifting the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.
Zach Bogosian also scored and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 34 shots to help the Jets win for the eighth time in their last nine at home.
Guillaume Latendresse scored for Minnesota and Niklas Backstrom had 25 saves as the league-best Wild snapped their seven-game winning streak. Minnesota also ended a seven-game road winning streak, tops in the NHL this season.
Little's 11th goal of the season came at the end of a Wild penalty and extended his points streak to six games. Dustin Byfuglien and Blake Wheeler assisted on the goal, which came at the end of a slick passing play.
Minnesota had a power play with 1:06 left to go in the third but the Wild couldn't get the puck past Pavelec.
