ST. PAUL, Minn., March 14 (UPI) -- Mikko Koivu scored a goal and added two assists Sunday, lifting the Minnesota Wild to a 4-2 triumph over St. Louis.

Minnesota got a goal and an assist each from Andrew Brunette and Antti Miettinen and Guillaume Latendresse scored his 25th goal of the season, extending his career-best scoring total.

Backup goalie Josh Harding started for injured Nicklas Backstrom for the third straight game and won his second in a row, stopping 35 shots in the Wild's victory.
