ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Niklas Hagman and Corey Perry each scored in the third period Tuesday, rallying the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 victory over Minnesota.

With his team ahead 1-0 entering the frame, the Wild's Mikko Koivu lost the puck in his own end and it went right to Hagman, who rolled a shot up over the back of goalie Josh Harding and into the net 8:17 into the frame.

Perry gave Anaheim the lead 4 minutes later when he beat Harding to the short side, and the Ducks held on for their fourth win in five games.

Jonas Hiller earned the victory by stopping 17-of-18 shots.

The Wild lost their fifth straight and 20th in 25 contests.

Dany Heatley scored and Harding finished with 23 saves for Minnesota.
