ST. PAUL (AP) — Marco Scandella scored at 1:01 of overtime after missing two games with an illness to give the Minnesota Wild a 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.

Minnesota was reeling after blowing a 3-0 lead in the third period and getting outplayed by the scrappy Jets. But Scandella's third goal of the season — a low wrist shot from just inside the blue line that beat Michael Hutchinson — prevented the Wild from losing their second game this year after losing a three-goal lead.

Zach Parise scored two goals in his return from a concussion and helped give Minnesota a 3-0 lead after the first. But Winnipeg scored three goals in five minutes in the third to tie it and fire up the loud contingent of Jets fans.
