ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Antti Miettinen scored at 3:36 of overtime and Niklas Backstrom made 27 saves Wednesday night, lifting the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

Martin Havlat also added a goal for the Wild, who have won five of their last seven games.

Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks, who also lost 2-1 on Tuesday night at Dallas. Backup goaltender Curtis McElhinney stopped 25 shots for Anaheim.

Miettinen scored off a rebound. Wild rookie Marco Scandella carried the puck up the ice and made the save shot. McElhinney made an initial save on Miettinen as well, but the rebound bounced off of Miettinen’s chest and into the net.

The play was reviewed, but the goal stood.
