Josh Morrissey scored 1:09 into overtime to give the Winnipeg Jets a 5-4 victory against the Minnesota at Xcel Energy Center.

Morrissey's second goal of the preseason gave the Jets the win after the Wild tied the game 4-4 with 1:30 remaining in the third period on a 6-on-4 power-play goal by Mats Zuccarello with goalie Devan Dubnyk on the bench for an extra skater. Mason Appleton had given the Jets a 4-3 lead when he scored at 1:38 of the third.

Mathieu Perreault, Adam Lowry (shorthanded) and Jack Roslovic (power play) scored, Connor Hellebuyck allowed three goals on 19 shots in two periods and Laurent Brossoit made 15 saves on 16 shots in the third and overtime for Winnipeg, which finished the preseason 3-3-1.

The Jets, who were without recently re-signed restricted free agent forwards Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor, open the regular season against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; MSG, TSN3, NHL.TV).

Mikko Koivu, Matt Dumba and Kevin Fiala scored, and Dubnyk made 24 saves for Minnesota. The Wild ended the preseason 2-1-3 and open the regular season at the Nashville Predators on Thursday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).
