MINNESOTA 4, ST LOUIS 2 

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Mikko Koivu scored two goals to lead the Minnesota Wild to a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Martin Skoula and Brian Rolston also scored for the Wild. Barret Jackman and Lee Stempniak tallied for St. Louis.

The Blues led 1-0 after one period on Jackman's goal, which came at 17:04 in the first period. But Skoula tied it when he beat Blues goalie Manny Legace with a wrist shot 5:34 into the second period.

The Blues were whistled for four minor penalties in a 3:42 span midway through the second period, and Koivu made them pay by scoring two power-play goals.

Koivu gave the Wild the lead at 12:14 when he got control of a loose puck at the right side of the net and wristed a shot into the open goal.

He then made it 3-1 at 14:35 with a one-timer from the high slot.
