St. Paul, Minnesota – Jason Zucker of Las Vegas scored a dramatic third period goal – his 19th goal of the season – on a spinning wrist shot and then teammate Mikael Granlund scored spectacularly 12 seconds into OT as the NHL Minnesota Wild beat the LA Kings 5-4 at the Xcel Engery Center.
The game was hard with very heavy checking and had a playoff feel to it before a sold-out crowd of 19,110. Minnesota is now 40-14-6 and the LA Kings are 30-27-5.
Jason this season has 19 goals, 23 assists. The Wild is looking to go deep in the upcoming NHL playoffs.
