Zucker's scores as Wild rally to beat Red Wings

Posted: Updated:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Dany Heatley, Jason Zucker and Torrey Mitchell all scored in the second period to rally the Minnesota Wild over the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Sunday night.

It was Minnesota's first regulation win since Jan. 29 and just the second time it scored at least three goals in regulation over the last nine games.

Damien Brunner and Pavel Datsyuk scored for Detroit, which has lost three straight for the first time since March 10-21 of last season.

After Heatley snapped a nine-game scoring drought to make it 2-1, Zucker went coast-to-coast and scored his first NHL goal to tie it. Mitchell scored his first goal in a Wild uniform off a faceoff scrum to give Minnesota the lead 30 seconds later.
