ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Cal Clutterbuck’s tying tip-in with 3:12 left in regulation and Devin Setoguchi’s shootout goal lifted the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night.

Setoguchi’s glove-side shot was the only one that went in during the skills contest. Josh Harding made 22 saves and was unscored upon after midway through the first period when Jamal Mayers gave the Blackhawks an early lead. The Hawks had only two shots on goal over the last 25 minutes of the game, one in the third.

Their struggling special teams didn’t help. The Wild gave them four power plays over the first two periods, including a five-minute man-advantage situation, but the Blackhawks didn’t score on any of those. Then their penalty kill let in a late goal.
