Mark Letestu also scored for the Blue Jackets split squad, which built a 3-0 lead by the 7:53 mark of the second period.
Nino Niederreiter scored for the Wild, via the power play at 10:09 of the second. Yeo said Niederreiter was Minnesota's best forward Tuesday.
"What he did with the puck, he was strong tonight," Yeo said of Niederreiter, who was acquired from the New York Islanders at the NHL Draft in exchange for Cal Clutterbuck and a third-round pick.
Wild left wing Jason Zucker did not play the last two periods due to a tweaked groin, according to Yeo.
