ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP/KDVR) — Jonas Brodin scored 18 seconds into overtime to give the depleted Minnesota Wild a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche.

Jordan Greenway, who had an earlier goal, set up the winner with a pass from the end line. Victor Rask scored his second goal of the game for Minnesota to tie it with 7:26 left in regulation.

Brandon Saad, Joonas Donskoi and Cale Makar had goals for the Avalanche. Nathan MacKinnon had two assists before leaving during the second intermission with a lower-body injury.

Coach Jared Bednar did not have any information regarding MacKinnon’s injury after the game. Added to the several other players out, Bednar is trying to focus on the things he can control as a coach.

“Well it’s frustrating. Every team’s going to go through the rigors of the schedule. It’s a tough schedule,” Bednar said. “We’re trying to use our whole bench, we’re not like overtaxing guys when it comes to minutes played.”
