NHL: Minnesota 3, Anaheim 2 (OT)

ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored with just 7 seconds to go in overtime Friday, giving Minnesota a 3-2 win over Anaheim.

Minnesota handed the Ducks their fifth straight loss, a streak that goes unbroken despite an attempt by Anaheim to rectify recent goaltending problems.


The Wild took a 2-1 lead with 4:57 left in regulation on a slap shot by Clayton Stoner, but Franciois Beauchemin tied it with 2 minutes to go in the third period.

A shootout was looming when Bouchard scored his seventh goal of the season.

No. 1 Anaheim goaltender Jonas Hiller has been out of action this month due to lightheadedness and fatigue. Curtis McElhinney struggled while filling in for Hiller and he was traded to Tampa Bay Thursday for goaltender Dan Ellis.

Ellis got the start Friday and allowed three goals on 31 shots.

The win went to Jose Theodore, who made 47 saves.
