Cooke, Harding help Wild top Jets 2-1 for 1st win

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Matt Cooke's goal gave Minnesota the lead in the second period, and Josh Harding made 14 saves for the Wild in a 2-1 victory on Thursday night over the Winnipeg Jets, their newest rival in the recreated Central Division.

Jonas Brodin scored first for the Wild on Ondrej Pavelec, who stopped 28 shots. He has played all four games for the Jets and allowed 12 goals.

Bryan Little's goal in the final minute of the first period during a 5-on-3 power play tied the game for the Jets, who were outplayed from start to finish in their second road game of the season. It came against a Wild team edgy for its first victory.

After scoring five goals in each of their first two games, the Jets have only three goals and 32 shots over their last two contests.
