EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Jared Spurgeon scored a pair of goals, including the power-play winner with 1:46 remaining in the third period, and the Minnesota Wild started the preseason with a 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

Spurgeon's goal came with Taylor Hall in the penalty box for inadvertently high-sticking Justin Falk while swinging at a loose puck.

Jarod Palmer and Pierre-Marc Bouchard also scored for the Wild.

Anton Lander, Magnus Paajarvi and Antti Tyrvainen scored for the Oilers, who played a split-squad game, with the other team playing at the same time against Chicago in Saskatoon.
