Wild Vs. Blue Jackets: Minnesota Rallies For 4-2 Win

The Minnesota Wild came back from a 2-0 deficit to reel off four straight goals in an inspiring win against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night in Columbus.

Cal Clutterbuck scored the go-ahead goal in the third period to bring the Wild all the way back after trailing by two goals after the first period. Matt Cullen started the comeback for Minnesota with a power play goal midway through the second period, his team-leading eighth goal of the season, before Nick Johnson tied the game just 20 seconds later. Devin Setoguchi added an empty-net goal as time ticked down on another tough loss for the Blue Jackets, who fell to 3-13-1 on the season.

Minnesota was outshot 45-23 on the night and 18-6 in the first period alone, but Niklas Backstrom stopped a season-high 43 shots for the Wild.

The Wild, proudly sitting in first place in the Northwest Division, are back in action on Nov. 17 when they host the Colorado Avalanche.
