Baertschi scores 2 to help Canucks beat Wild 5-4
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Sven Baertschi scored his second of the night with 2:35 left in regulation Tuesday as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Minnesota Wild 5-4.
Brandon Sutter and Ben Hutton each had a goal and an assist, and Loui Eriksson also scored for Vancouver. Henrik Sedin and Troy Stecher had two assists each and Ryan Miller stopped 38 shots.
Ryan Suter scored the tying goal late in the third for Minnesota. Jason Pominville had two goals, Jason Zucker added a goal and an assist, and Nino Niederreiter had two assists. Darcy Kuemper got the start with Devan Dubnyk given the night off and finished with 30 saves.
Baertschi, who has struggled to rediscover his scoring touch that emerged toward the end of last season, tipped Stecher's point shot to cap a crazy third period that saw the teams combine for five goals.
