Minnesota Edges Blackhawks 4-3

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Marco Scandella’s slap shot with 1:48 left, the defenseman’s first goal this season, lifted the Minnesota Wild to a 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday.

Jonas Brodin scored on a power play with 5:39 remaining to tie the game for the Wild, who raised their home record to 12-3-2 and handed the Blackhawks their first loss in their past seven road games.

With Charlie Coyle partially screening Corey Crawford at the edge of the crease, Brodin wound up and sent the puck ricocheting off Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya and past the goalie’s outstretched glove.

Crawford made 19 saves.
