ANAHEIM (AP) — Nick Johnson scored the go-ahead goal with 5:31 left in the third period, Casey Wellman and Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored 32 seconds apart in the second period, leading the Minnesota Wild to a 5-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks  on Sunday night.

Matt Cullen had three assists for Minnesota against his former club, and Josh Harding made 24 saves. Dany Heatley scored a power-play goal and Kyle Clutterbuck added a short-handed empty-netter with 10.2 seconds left for Minnesota in the opener of a five-game trip.

Anaheim is 0-2 since recently deposed Washington coach Bruce Boudreau replaced Randy Carlyle behind the bench. The Ducks, who have won just three of their last 21 games, squandered a 2-0 lead just two nights after blowing a 3-0 advantage in Boudreau’s debut — a 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia.
