ST. PAUL, Minn. - Charlie Coyle scored for Minnesota midway through the third period, 43 seconds after Ryan Suter's second goal of the game thwarted Edmonton's rally, and the Wild hung on to beat the Oilers 4-3 on Tuesday night.
Darnell Nurse scored his first NHL goal soon after the second intermission, giving the Oilers the lead following a 2-0 deficit in the first period, but the Wild roared back against goalie Cam Talbot.
Suter knocked in a loose puck from the crease. Then Coyle crashed the net and tapped in the setup from Thomas Vanek, who had two assists and has at least one point in four straight games.
Taylor Hall had a goal and an assist for the Oilers, who fell to 3-7 under new coach Todd McLellan with 18-year-old Connor McDavid now headlining a lineup with four of the last six players taken with the first overall pick in the draft.
