Wild 4, Blue Jackets 2 16 Nov 11

Cal Clutterbuck recorded the game-winner in the third period as the Minnesota Wild overcame a two-goal deficit to beat the host Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2 on Tuesday.

Matt Cullen added his eighth tally and Nick Johnson picked up his second for the Wild, who finished up a five-game road trip with a 3-2-0 mark. They begin a six-game homestand against Colorado on Thursday.

After allowing a pair of goals in the first period, Minnesota got back into it on the power play in the second. Cullen came in from the left side and cleaned up a rebound in front of the net, backhanding a shot over sprawled out goaltenderSteve Mason.

Johnson scored in a similar way 20 seconds later. Now at even strength, Mason once again failed to control a rebound and the Blue jackets could not clear the puck, leaving it for Johnson to push in from the doorstep.

Clutterbuck snapped the tie at 7:38 of the third with his fourth goal.

Niklas Backstrom made 43 saves and Devin Setoguchi added an empty-net tally for Minnesota.
