Defenseman Jared Spurgeon scored the Minnesota Wild's third power-play goal of the game, firing home a wrist shot with 4:51 left in regulation to give the Wild a 4-3 win against the Winnipeg Jets at home.

Spurgeon jumped in from the point, took a feed from Michael Keranen and wristed a shot past goaltender Ondrej Pavelec to break a 3-3 tie.

The Wild also got power-play goals by Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter, as well as a penalty-shot goal by Erik Haula late in the first period. Minnesota went 3-for-4 with the extra man and killed off all three Winnipeg power plays.

Nicolas Petan, Matt Halischuk and Grant Clitsome scored for the Jets, who managed 17 shots against Niklas Backstrom. Pavelec made 20 saves.
