Erik Karlsson Scores in OT and Ottawa Senators Edge Minnesota Wild 3-2
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Erik Karlsson scored at 4:29 of overtime and the Ottawa Senators rallied to beat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 Tuesday night.
Mike Hoffman and Mika Zibanejad also scored for the Senators as Craig Anderson, making his 55th start of the season, made 23 saves.
Nino Niederreiter and Ryan Carter scored for the Wild, who have a one-point lead on the Colorado Avalanche for the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference. Devan Dubnyk stopped 17 shots.
The Senators were looking to carry momentum from a 4-0 win over Toronto on Saturday, but struggled against the stingy Wild.
