Wild deny Coyotes third straight victory
- Zach Parise had a goal and an assist for the Minnesota Wild in a 3-2 win against the Arizona Coyotes at Xcel Energy Center on Thursday.
- Jordan Greenway broke a tie in the third period, Kevin Fiala scored, and Devan Dubnyk made 27 saves for the Wild (7-11-1), who have a five-game home point streak (4-0-1).
“You try to tell yourself to keep working at it and keep doing the right things and it’ll pay off,” Parise said. “And fortunately, tonight it did. Most importantly we were able to hang on and win the game. That’s big for us right now.”
- Conor Garland and Lawson Crouse scored, and Antti Raanta made 31 saves for the Coyotes (11-7-2), who had won two in a row.
“I don’t know if some of the guys were tired and we’re making mental mistakes,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said. “I do like the response after the first period. The first period they were all over us, it wasn’t good.”
