The Minnesota Wild (41-14-6) survived a crazy game, beating the Winnipeg Jets (28-30-6) 6-5 last night in Winnipeg. The Wild raced out to a 4-1 lead, only to see the Jets comeback to tie the game 5-5 -- before Jason Zucker netted the game-winner late in the third.

The five goals prior to Zucker's belonged to Mikael Granlund, Tyler Graovac, Erik Haula, Marco Scandella, and newcomer Ryan White, his second since joining the team two games ago.

The Wild sit five points ahead of Chicago in the Central Division, and Chicago's played one more game. The Wild's 88 points are second only to Washington's 91 for most in the league.

Next the Wild face the Blue Jackets tomorrow night (3/2) in Columbus.  Let's go Wild!
