WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Marco Scandella scored the tiebreaking goal with 12 seconds left in the second period as the Minnesota Wild rallied from two down to beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Monday night.

Scandella's ninth of the season was Minnesota's third goal in the second period and helped the Wild snap a five-game winless skid.

Ryan Carter and Justin Fontaine had the other goals for Minnesota (17-13-4). Sutter and Kyle Brodziak each had assists on the goals.

Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper returned after missing one game with food poisoning and made 28 saves.

It was Winnipeg's (19-11-7) first loss in regulation in its past six games (4-1-1).

Michael Frolik and Mathieu Perreault both scored on the power play for the Jets.
