Wild Vs Avalanche Score Update: Minnesota Tied 2-2 After Second Period

The Minnesota Wild are in the thick of a good game through two periods of play at Pepsi Center, tied with the Colorado Avalanche 2-2.

A back-and-forth night has so far seen Avalanche strike first on a goal by T.J. Galiardi in the first period before Minnesota came back quickly with two first period goals by Justin Falk and Dany Heatley respectively to take a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

However, Chuck Kobasew tied up the game just 4:46 into the second period. Just a couple minutes later, Daniel Winnik of Colorado was whistled for a penalty for slashing Falk, prompting a fight between the two players that resulted in five-minute majors for both.

The Wild are looking to string together consecutive wins after snapping a four-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Saturday.
