ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Josh Harding stopped 30 shots to win his fourth straight start, and Dany Heatley and Guillaume Latendresse each scored for Minnesota as the Wild beat the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Saturday night.
The Wild won their fourth straight in a physical game that at one point had a combined 11 players in the penalty boxes at the same time.
Jamie Langenbrunner scored his first goal of the season with 2 minutes to play. The Blues pulled goalie Jaroslav Halak with 1:26 to go, but couldn’t get another shot past Harding.
Halak stopped 24 shots but lost his fifth consecutive start. A night after ending a two-game skid in a 3-2 win at home against Vancouver, the Blues had a rough time getting the puck out of their zone and lost their third straight road game.
