The Temperture Drops in Edmonton

The Minnesota Wild staged a furious comeback to earn a 5-4 overtime win over the Edmonton Oilers at Xcel Energy Center on Saturday. Petteri Nummelin netted the winner on a wrist shot from the right circle while on the power play for Minnesota (22-14-2), which capped its first-ever comeback from a three-goal deficit at home.
Edmonton was leading 4-1 late in the second period and mopey me was on their backs from my perch in section 227. Turns out I was reminded of why we play the games and why we stay for the whole thing.
Kim Johnsson, Brent Burns, Brian Rolston and Marian Gaborik also tallied for the Wild, which allowed a franchise-high two short-handed goals but managed to rally for the victory.
