Wild get past Jets as top players sit

The Wild left arguably their three best players in the Twin Cities and still beat the Jets at MTS Centre.

Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu and Ryan Suter stayed home, but Minnesota got goals by young players Mathew Dumba, Charlie Coyle and Kris Foucault before Steven Kampfer hit the empty net. Coyle snapped a 1-1 tie at 14:53 of the second period, and Foucault beat Al Montoya 16 seconds later.

Bryan Little had the goal for Winnipeg. Josh Harding stopped 16 shots through two periods before Darcy Kuemper made 12 saves in the third.

"We didn't accomplish the things we wanted to accomplish," Jets coach Claude Noel said. "We had some good performances from some players, but not enough of them. There are a lot of areas we certainly need to improve on."
