Phoenix Coyotes defeat Minnesota Wild, 6-4

GLENDALE, ARIZ. - Third-period miracles don't happen every night -- hence the word, miracle.

Exactly seven nights after the Wild staged the biggest comeback in franchise history against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Wild tried to carbon-copy a rally from four goals down in the final 20 minutes again Saturday night.

No dice. The Wild fell short, turning what was a humiliation at one point into at least a more respectable-looking 6-4 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.
