Wild Vs. Blue Jackets Final Score: Minnesota Can't Keep Up, Fall 3-1

The Minnesota Wild dropped their second game in a row on Tuesday night's 3-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Wild went down early in the first period when David Savard picked up his first goal of the season, assisted by Vaclav Prospal and Grant Clitsome to put the Jackets up 1-0. The Wild were able to quickly answer however on a Nick Prosser goal assisted by Justin Falk and Carson McMillan to tie the game at 1-1.

That was the only goal the Wild would score in the game however, as the Jackets scored two more goals on the night, one in each remaining period. Antoine Vermette picked up his seventh goal of the season on a power play in the second period, while Jeff Carter picked up his tweleth goal of the season in the third period.
