EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Kyle Brodziak scored a pair of goals, and the Minnesota Wild earned another late-season win by topping the Edmonton Oilers 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Charlie Coyle, Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise also scored for the Wild (24-16-3), who are 2-0-1 in their last three games after losing five of six. Minnesota remained in sixth place in the Western Conference playoff race.

Nail Yakupov, Magnus Paajarvi and Shawn Horcoff had goals for the Oilers (16-19-7), whose slim playoff hopes took another hit. Edmonton has lost six in a row on the heels of a five-game winning streak.

The Oilers again fell behind early as the Wild scored just over a minute in. Brodziak sent a knuckler of a shot on goalie Devan Dubnyk and got in front to knock in the rebound.
