ST. PAUL, Minn., March 21 (UPI) -- Chuck Kobasew scored a pair of goals Sunday to pace the Minnesota Wild to a 4-3 victory over Calgary.
Harding came up particularly big in the third period after Eric Nystrom tipped in a shot from the point from Cory Sarich at 5:49 to make it 4-3. The Minnesota netminder nailed down the win by stopping Jarome Iginla on two chances from close-in during the final minute.
Steve Staios, Ian White and Nystrom tallied for the Flames, who suffered a key setback with the loss. They were unable to make up ground against Detroit, which holds a 2-point advantage in the race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
