Mathieu Perreault scores at 4:55 of OT to lift to Ducks 4-3 victory over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Mathieu Perreault scored at 4:55 of overtime to give the Anaheim Ducks a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

Perreault's game-winner came on a 2-on-1 break with Francois Beauchemin. He dumped the puck to a streaking Beauchemin, who gave it right back to Perreault, and the centre flipped his shot past Niklas Backstrom to give the Ducks their first win of the season.

Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller had 30 saves while Backstrom finished with 26.

Zach Parise scored two goals for Minnesota.
