ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Carlo Colaiacovo scored with 1:09 to play to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 preseason win over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

Matt D'Agostini of the Blues tied the game at 3 with a power-play goal with 7:30 left in the third period.

Scott Nichol, who returned from offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum, and Patrik Berglund also scored for St. Louis (4-2).

Marek Zidlicky, Mikko Koivu and Brett Bulmer scored for the Wild (3-2), which led 3-1 early in the second.

Newcomers Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi both had two assists for Minnesota.

Bulmer replaced Brad Staubitz, who will miss the rest of the preseason and the first three regular season games after being suspended by the NHL for his boarding major against Columbus on Friday.
