Koivu scores in shootout as Wild beat Kings 4-3

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Mikko Koivu scored in a shootout to give the Minnesota Wild a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Koivu also had two assists in regulation. Matt Cullen also had a goal, Zach Parise had a goal and an assist and Niklas Backstrom stopped 28 shots for Minnesota, which bounced back after having its seven-game win streak ended a night earlier in Dallas.

Dustin Brown and Jeff Carter had power-play goals, and Justin Williams also scored for the Kings, who blew a two-goal lead and fell to 2-1 on their five-game road trip. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick made 25 saves.

Backstrom won his eighth consecutive start and his 19th game of the season a night after sitting out for the first time in 13 games.
