That was Minnesota’s 6th victory in 8 matches in the NHL.

Matt Boldy scored 2 goals as the Minnesota Wild won against the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 at Rogers Place in Edmonton, AB.

Jonas Brodin and Mats Zuccarello also notched for Minnesota, who are 6-1-1 in their last 8 matches. Filip Gustavsson made 41 saves to lead his organization to pull 2 points behind St. Louis for the 2nd wild card in the West.

“We needed to win and play well, and I believe we achieved both against the Oilers,” Boldy shared. “There was a little bit of a lull in the 2nd period, but you expect that vs. a franchise like this and the players that they have.

“We must thank each player for our victory, it was fantastic.”

Leon Draisaitl and Zach Hyman scored for Edmonton, who were defeated in 2 straight matches but are 28-7-1 in their last 36 clashes. Goalie Calvin Pickard stopped 16 shots.

Minnesota will play against Seattle tomorrow to end a 3-match trip, while Edmonton will welcome the Flames in the 3rd of a 5-match homestand.
