Moulson, Koivu rally Wild to 3-2 win, ending Kings' 6-game winning streak

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Matt Moulson and Mikko Koivu scored 62 seconds apart in the third period, and Zach Parise connected on a power play for the Minnesota Wild, who rallied for a 3-2 victory Monday night that snapped the Los Angeles Kings' six-game winning streak.

Ilya Bryzgalov made 18 saves for the Wild. It was the second time in eight games that the Kings lost in regulation when leading after two periods — something that happened only once in their previous 138 contests.

Alec Martinez and Justin Williams scored for Los Angeles, both capitalizing on turnovers by defenceman Jared Spurgeon in his zone. Jonathan Quick stopped 17 shots.

Moulson tied it with 16:06 remaining, using Martinez as a screen and beating Quick for his 22nd goal. Koivu made it 3-2 with his 10th on a one-timer from the top of the left circle.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
