NHL: Minnesota 8, Nashville 4

April 10, 2009 at 11:55 PM   |   Comments

ST. PAUL, Minn., April 10 (UPI) -- Marc-Andre Bergeron led an offensive onslaught with two goals Friday that helped the Minnesota Wild crush Nashville 8-4.

The Predators played what turned out to be their final game of the season. Their slim hopes for a playoff spot were wiped out by the loss, combined with a win by St. Louis over Columbus.

Minnesota, which also missed the playoffs, produced its largest goal total of the season.

The Wild scored four unanswered goals spanning the first and second periods to take a 4-1 lead and held on to win their third game in four tries. Mikko Koivu and Dan Fritsche both had a goal and an assist and Niklas Backstrom got the win despite allowing four goals on 35 shots.

Nashville lost four of its final six games.
