Wild Vs. Predators Final Score: Minnesota Falls 5-4 At Home

The Minnesota Wild blew a 3-0 lead and were shocked by the Nashville Predators 5-4 at Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday night in their first game back from the All-Star break.

Minnesota took a 3-0 lead and carried a 4-1 lead into the third period before the Predators stunned the Wild with four straight goals in the final 11 minutes of the game including the game-winner with just 21 seconds remaining in regulation.

Mike Fisher scored the final two goals for the Predators in the last three minutes of regulation, including the unassisted game-winner.

The Wild had snapped a four-game losing streak with two straight wins before the break.

The Wild now start a three-game road trip on Thursday beginning with the Colorado Avalanche in a game that will start at 9:00 p.m. eastern. After that they will visit the Dallas Stars and Columbus Blue Jackets.
