Setoguchi's OT goal gives Wild 2-1 win over Predators, snaps 3-game losing streak

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Devin Setoguchi's power-play goal at 4:21 of overtime gave Minnesota a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators and snapped the Wild's three-game losing streak on Saturday night.

Setoguchi took a pass from Mikko Koivu and fired a shot past Chris Mason for his first goal of the season and the Wild's 23rd in 11 games.

Cal Clutterbuck also scored, and Niklas Backstrom stopped 25 shots for Minnesota.

Paul Gaustad scored for Nashville, which had a four-game winning streak broken.

Gaustad was whistled for a hand-pass penalty on a faceoff at 2:48 of overtime. Gaustad held his hands up in bewilderment as he skated to the penalty box, and coach Barry Trotz yelled at the officials.

Mason — starting in place of Pekka Rinne — turned aside a couple of Wild scoring chances, but couldn't stop Setoguchi's shot.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
