ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Antti Miettinen scored with 1:24 remaining in overtime Wednesday to end a goaltending duel and give the Minnesota Wild a 2-1 win over Anaheim.

Anaheim goaltender Curtis McElhinney stopped a shot from Marco Scandella, but his kick save went right to Miettinen. After Miettinen's shot was also rejected, the puck deflected off Miettinen's upper body and found its way into the net.
