DENVER (AP) --- Zach Parise scored three times, including the tiebreaking tally
in the third period, and the Minnesota Wild overcame a three-goal deficit to
beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-4 on Thursday night.
Trailing 4-1 in the final period, the Wild had four goals in a 5:07 span to
stun the Avalanche. Parise scored twice, while Thomas Vanek and Nino
Niederreiter added the other two.
Parise beat Semyon Varlamov with a slap shot to put Minnesota up for good
midway through the third period. Colorado pulled Varlamov for an extra skater
in the final minute but couldn't score on Devan Dubnyk.
Jarome Iginla, Erik Johnson and Gabriel Landeskog had goals in the first period
for Colorado. John Mitchell added another in the second as the Avalanche built
what appeared to be a comfortable lead before the Wild stormed back.
