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 remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
