st. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) — Kirill Kaprizov clocked 3:02 into overtime to take his first win of the season on Thursday night as he threw Minnesota’s Wild into his 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the Vancouver Canucks. I was.

Kaprizov scored four goals of the season and added two assists as Minnesota closed out the season opener four-game homestand with their first points of the season. Mats Zuccarello added his two goals and Sam Steele scored his second goal of the season.

Marc-André Fleury had 23 saves for Minnesota.

Wild manager Dean Evason said, “To get a win like that, you just have to believe or hope and believe it will get us going.” In the match I was still restless in many areas, but this is not characteristic, hopefully this will help me relax a bit.”

Bo Hobatt scored for the third straight game, Dakota Joshua scored a goal and an assist, and Nils Amann scored his first NHL goal for Vancouver to take another lead.

Thatcher Demko had 33 saves for the Canucks.

Vancouver led by multiple goals in each of their first four games, blowing each in the previous game’s overtime loss to Columbus, taking just one point away. This cost them another third period advantage.

Canucks manager Bruce Boudreau said, “We’re either leading or we’re in a draw with less than seven minutes left and it’s very frustrating to not get a win.” We know what we can do, and if we turn it around, it will turn around for a long time, and we just want to do it quickly.”

The Canucks struggled to hold onto their lead this season, while the Wild struggled to get ahead.

Zuccarello’s first goal of the game gave Minnesota a 4:37 first lead of the new year into the first period.

The lead was just 3:21 as Hobatt tapped a centering pass from Tanner Pearson to score his 4th goal of the season in a give-and-go.

Ammann, who was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the sixth round of the 2020 draft, scored for the first time in his fifth career game. Joshua sent Amann alone with a behind-the-back pass to Fleury, and Amann beat Fleury with a wrist shot.

“It’s always fun to score,” said Ammann. “It’s nice from Joshua. He got the pass and he had the speed so I just tried to get it into the net and it went in. But it’s a shame to lose.”

Steele tied the game before the first break. Joshua’s goal was the second and only tally, and it held up until Zuccarello scored the second of the game on a power play, sending a pass from Caprizov past Demko.

After posting a franchise-record 53 wins and 113 points last season, the Wild, a team with Stanley Cup ambitions, suffered a defensive blunder in a disappointing start. Thursday’s game started the same way, but Minnesota recovered.

Fleury, a 37-year-old netminder who re-signed with Minnesota on a two-year deal in the offseason, allowed 14 goals on 75 shots and was pulled out in his previous start. He was at his best from the second period, allowing one goal in the last 18 shots he faced.

After a 31-7-2 record at home last season, The Wild conceded 20 goals in the first three games of their opening homestand.

“It’s good to see everyone laughing and laughing a little bit,” said Fleury. “We have a really good team and chemistry. We’re all excited, aren’t we? We’re not ourselves. We hope you can relax, smile and enjoy the game. We’re working on it. It’s good.” It’s good to see the laughter, we just have to develop it further.”

short return

Minnesota forward Jordan Greenway made his season debut after recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, but suffered an upper body injury midway through the first half and did not return.

Evason said Greenway will be tested but the forward won’t play on Saturday.Evason said it wasn’t the same injury that required surgery.

Vancouver also lost defenseman Riley Stillman to an undisclosed injury. Boudreau did not have an update on Stillman after the match.
