NHL: MInnesota 2, Anaheim 1

ST. PAUL, Minn., March 28 (UPI) -- Marian Gaborik scored the go-ahead tally with 7:42 remaining Sunday as Minnesota snapped a seven-game winless skid against Anaheim with a 2-1 victory.

Anaheim goalkeeper Jean-Sebastien Giguere dominated Minnesota in the 2003 Western Conference finals and continued that success in the first two meetings this season. The Wild entered Sunday with just two goals in their last 393 minutes against last year' Conn Smythe Trophy winner.

Gaborik helped Minnesota finally get the best of Giguere when he took the puck from behind the net and skated in front of the crease, faking a backhand shot before turning and firing a shot under the goaltender's stick.

The Wild held on for their sixth win in 10 games (6-2-1-1) behind Dwayne Roloson, who stopped 21 shots.

Niclas Havelid scored a power-play goal for Anaheim, which fell to 3-8-1 in its last 12 contests.
