Wild 2, Kings 1

Minnesota had been 1-for-19 on the power play in its previous four games, but the Wild took the lead with a power-play goal with five minutes left in the second period. Andrew Brunette held the puck to the right of the Kings’ net and fed a perfect, no-look backdoor pass to Kim Johnsson, who skated in and scored on a one-timer.
