Andrew Brunette's power-play goal in overtime lifted the Wild to a 4-3 win over the Ducks on Tuesday night in Minnesota's home opener. Trailing, 3-0, with less than 14 minutes to play in the third period, the Wild got goals from Mikko Koivu, Petr Sykora and Eric Belanger to send the game to overtime. The Ducks got second-period goals from Joffrey Lupul, Evgeny Artyukhin and Saku Koivu, but were held to only two shots in the third period. Looking to bounce back after losing to San Jose, 4-1, at the Honda Center on Saturday, the Ducks instead let a seemingly secure lead slip away.

Ales Kotalik's power-play goal snapped a third-period tie, and backup Steve Valiquette made 18 saves in the New York Rangers' fourth straight victory, 3-0, against the Ducks on Sunday. New York, 4-0 since a season-opening loss to the Stanley Cup-champion Pittsburgh Penguins, earned this victory in Sean Avery's season debut following his knee injury during training camp.
