Zach Parise scores 27 seconds into overtime to lift Wild to 2-1 comeback win over Flames

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Zach Parise scored 27 seconds into overtime to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

With the Wild sputtering on offence once again, Jason Zucker scored for Minnesota with 4:19 left in regulation to send it to overtime.

Calgary's Mark Giordano was then given a delay-of-game penalty with 43 seconds to go. The penalty carried over into the extra period, and Parise beat goalie Joey MacDonald for the 4-on-3 winner. Parise's goal was only Minnesota's fourth in its last 41 power-play opportunities.

Alex Tanguay scored for the Flames and MacDonald stopped 28 shots.

Niklas Backstrom made 20 saves for the Wild.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
