ST. PAUL, Minn. - Josh Harding stopped 19 shots for his second shutout of the season and the Minnesota Wild beat the New Jersey Devils 4-0 Sunday night.

Mikael Granlund, Torrey Mitchell, Dany Heatley and Jason Pominville scored for the Wild, who have won five of six. Nino Niederreiter had three assists.

Cory Schneider, back after missing three games with a sore groin, finished with 16 saves for New Jersey. The Devils were blanked for the second straight night and fourth time in 14 games.

New Jersey defenceman Jon Merrill left his first NHL game after sliding hard into the boards in the first period. The team said he had lacerations on his face.

FLAMES 3, BLACKHAWKS 2, OT

CHICAGO (AP) — Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime and Reto Berra made 42 saves in his first NHL game, leading the Flames to the victory.

Russell's shot from the blue line clanked off the crossbar and past Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, ending Calgary's 10-game losing streak in Chicago. The Flames won at the United Center for the first time since March 2008.

Mike Cammalleri and Curtis Glencross scored in regulation for the Flames. Calgary's T.J. Galiardi missed on a second-period penalty shot.

Chicago's Marian Hossa scored a power-play goal with 4:19 left in the third period to tie it at 2. Patrick Kane also scored for Chicago, which had won three in a row.

Crawford made 27 saves.

Antoine Roussel, Ray Whitney and Valeri Nichushkin scored in regulation for the Stars (6-6-2). Kari Lehtonen stopped Milan Michalek, Jason Spezza and Bobby Ryan in the shootout.

Ottawa lost goaltender Craig Anderson when he went down hard after being hit by Valeri Nichushkin in overtime. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher after he appeared to take a knee to the head.

Anderson faced 36 shots before Robin Lehner was forced into action.

Ryan, Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza scored for the Senators (4-6-4), with Ryan tying it with 9.6 seconds remaining in regulation.

Lehtonen made 33 saves.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
