Wild Vs. Jets Final Score: Minnesota's Streak Snapped in 2-1 Loss

All good things must come to an end, and while that won't do much to subdue the disappointment, the Minnesota Wild's seven-game winning streak was nevertheless halted by the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

The Jets scored a surprising, come-from-behind 2-1 win after Bryan Little netted the game-winning goal with just five minutes to go in regulation.

Minnesota struck first on a power play goal by Guillaume Latendresse assisted by Mikko Koivu and Dany Heatley in the second period, but Zach Bogosian tied the game for the Jets less than four minutes later.

Winnipeg was outshot by Minnesota 35-27 on the night, but Jets netminder Ondrej Pavelec was up for the challenge.

Minnesota hasn’t won eight in a row since a franchise-record nine-game run March 8-24, 2007.

The Wild, who hadn't lost since Nov. 27 before tonight, will not have much time to lick their wounds: They now go home to host the Chicago Blackhawks, who lead the Central Division, on Wednesday,
