ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Owen Nolan scored in the eighth round of the shootout Saturday to nail down Minnesota's 6-5 win over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks.

Guillaume Latendresse scored twice for Minnesota. Marek Zidlicky, Kim Johnsson and Mikko Koivu also tallied for the Wild.

Niklas Backstrom played two periods in goal for Minnesota. He was pulled after giving up five goals on 12 shots. Josh Harding stopped all 13 shots he faced and allowed one goal on seven attempts in the shootout.

Marian Hossa, Patrick Sharp, Jonathan Toews, Troy Brouwer and Kris Versteeg scored for the Blackhawks, who had their five-game winning streak end. Huet made 16 saves in the loss.
