Koivu scores twice as Wild beat shorthanded Blue Jackets 5-4

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Mikko Koivu scored twice to snap a 30-game goalless drought, Eric Staal added his 18th goal and the Minnesota Wild held on to beat the shorthanded Columbus Blue Jackets 5-4 on Tuesday night.

Alex Stalock made 24 saves and Ryan Donato and Kevin Fiala also scored as Minnesota won for the third time in five games under interim coach Dean Evason. The Wild started the day five points behind Arizona for the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

"Right now, we're in a pretty good spot, so we know what we have to do," Fiala said,. "We believe. We know it's going to be us, especially now with the deadline. We're happy to stay with this group and just to continue with this group moving forward."
