Parise, Suter score as Wild beat Lightning 3-2 to snap skid

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Ryan Suter and the Minnesota Wild knew the importance of starting their seven-game homestand with a strong performance.

Minnesota had lost four in a row and was coming off a particularly deflating 7-3 defeat at Pittsburgh that included a lineup-card snafu that put them down a defenseman. To top it off, the Wild were facing the streaking Tampa Bay Lightning to begin their longest homestand of the season.

Suter scored his seventh goal, Zach Parise got his team-leading 17th and Minnesota snapped its losing streak with a 3-2 win against Tampa Bay on Thursday night.
