Wild slip past Jets in shootout

Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Charlie Coyle's tally in the fourth round of the shootout sent Minnesota past Winnipeg, 3-2, on Saturday afternoon at MTS Centre.

After Niklas Backstrom turned away Devin Setoguchi, Coyle snaked his way through the zone and managed to pull Ondrej Pavelec to the left post while he slid the puck inside the far pipe to end the contest.

Nino Niederreiter and Zach Parise scored for the Wild, who improved to 9-1-1 in November.

Backstrom stopped 37 shots in regulation and three of four in the breakaway round.

Michal Frolik and Matt Halischuk provided offense for the Jets, who have gone winless in their last four (0-2-2) but dropped a pair of shootouts in that span.

Pavelec finished with 33 stops in the loss.
